1st attempt, but not working

Recommended Posts

jcarle et al,

I've had a go at trying to create my .ul file and I believe all is ok, but for some reason WUD will not see the file, no matter which location I place the file.

The code I have used is: (a simple x3 o2k3 updates)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<updatelist product="MS Office 2003" platform="x86" language="ENU" lastupdate="2008-11-10" xmlns="http://wud.jcarle.com" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://wud.jcarle.com http://wud.jcarle.com/wud.xsd">

After you've finished your UL file, save it with a UL extension. Then you must ZIP this file and rename the .zip extension to .ulz. After which you'll be able to double click it and it will place the UL file in the correct location and be seen by WUD.

I tested your UL and it's fine. I would suggest however that you name your categories as follows to avoid repetition for legibility :

<category id="1">Critical Updates</category>
<category id="2">Important Updates</category>
<category id="3">Recommended Updates</category>
<category id="4">Service Packs</category>

cheers jcarle, and sorry for delay been away for while.

those steps regarding the save as & zip as etc i don't recall seeing in the steps so will have another go and see what happens.

woohoo the last step of the save as .ul & then zip up as .zip and then rename as .ulz has made it all work

thank you fella and all for looking and chipping in.
