    RR Interchange - Update RR via a USB Media Stick

    RR Interchange - Update RR via USB Media Stick.
    ----------------------------------------------

    RR Interchange is designed to allow the updating of RR via a USB Media Stick.

    It detects the insertion of a media stick and copies everything from the rr folder on the stick to the Road Runner path (It automatically detects it).

    It will be expanded soon to allow you to copy music and other media at the same time and there will also be a desktop app to download and extract RR to a USB Stick.

    On insertion of the Stick, the app will automatically close RoadRunner, copies all updates then restarts Road Runner, if no RR folder exists the Interchange does nothing. You currently need to download RoadRunnerBinary.zip from Guinos site and extract to the RR folder on the USB stick.

    Be aware, that RR Interchange won't work currently if Road Runner is set to be your shell, this will be fixed asap.

    Please let me know if you have any problems, be aware that this is nowhere near the complete app, its work in progress, hope this helps.

    This is a great idea, it's exactly what I need for my car, I didn't put in a WIFI card to keep the cost down.

    I'll try it out Monday and let you know. I presume this will work with normal USB flash pens as well merrorysticks (SONY only).

    Cheers good work!

    Cool, very useful... can you make it so it will also support phonecontrol, freedrive, mapmonkey... if it is easy to add additional dirs, that is...

    it can then sense which of the 4 (RR,phoco,freedrive,mm) if any are on the stick and update all of them? (phoco and MM might not work cause if I recall their updates are on exe packages)...

    As for the way it works have you given any try at doing an autostart program that sits on the stick itself? so when you stick it to the USB windows starts the autostart program on the usb stick... noneed for anything on the compter?

    RoYN, I'm hoping to make it a full app for all frontends and support software etc. I think the way I'll make it run is to have a small app on the carPC which in turn runs an app from the USB device which is placed on there by a desktop app, therefore can be updated everytime data is placed on the USB Device.

    I'm hoping it will grow and grow, need ideas from you guys as I go though.

    Phoco and MM shouldn't be too difficult to do, as long as the releases are always like that, I'll just run them as if they are running in an unattend XP CD.

    I also need to ask Guino if he will update a page with the latest update date so I can have a systray app on the desktop pop saying that there is a new update :-)

    wouldnt autostart work better tho? or at least just as well? I have tested and autostart works on removeable media too... the idea is to just be able to install antyhing on any machine just by popping the stick in...

    Good idea.

    As I sit at my desk reading the forum, waiting for the latest version of RR to copy to my memory stick...
