The pfd says:
Creating updatable extension packages (version 5.0 only)
I thought this means you need at least CS5.0, does it also refer to 5.5. and 6 - which weren't released when this pfd was? Could someone please confim if it should work higher than 5.0?
No. It does work in CS5 and later.
Are you sure you don't have network issues?
Thanks, What sort of issues are you referring to? I tested it on two domains and internet connection is fine.
Funny thing is that when I check the csxs3-PPRO.log file it doesn't mention the update or update url in any way.
As if there is smt wrong with the mxi file, which looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<macromedia-extension name="com.example.bla" requires-restart="true" version="1.1">
<product maxversion="" name="Premiere" primary="true" version="-1.0"/>
<file destination="" file-type="CSXS" products="" source="bla.zxp"/>
<file destination="$installfolder" products="Premiere" source="extendscriptprqe.txt"/>
but the products and files tags do their job just fine...
I had the update tag wrong, which should use a url attribute instead of a text element, I think the 'method' attribute is mandatory too:
<update method="directlink" url="http://www.bla.com/bla/update.xml" />
So now I am seeing the Update button when I open up Extension Manager, which is good news.
But is that all the automatic update does? I was expecting an update message when the user
opens the host app and then the panel?
