Anything I find interesting about Microsoft Access that isn't large enough to put on its own page as well as any updates to my website or the Auto FE Updater. Also links to blog postings and articles I feel would be of interest to developers.
Version 3.20 of the Auto FE Updater is now available for download.
The FAQ page was updated with a few items as well.
Perhaps add another flag so that the developer / administrator can choose automatic validation? I presume that validation is "on demand" to reduce "overhead" from the user's point of view, which seems reasonable.
It would require a bit more logic, but it seems that this automatic validation process could be constructed to run only once on each user's workstation.
Maybe that is getting too complicated.
I'm not sure what you mean by automatic validation?
If you mean the CRC errors those are built into the zip file routines. I used a hex editor to change a few bytes in a test zip file. Using Winzip's test option the same error was shown as the code produced. This also happens after the file is downloaded and is between the code that decompresses the file into an array and the code that writes the file. So there's no overhead other than some CPU time which is negligible compared to the possibility of a corrupt file.
