Remotely Install Newest Version

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure where to even ask this, figured I'd try here first.


Within my org we use an RMM tool (remote monitoring/mgmt) and I've crafted a script to install Paint.net to managed PCs. At the moment my script grabs the installer from a network share, and relies on me to download the installer.


So if an updated version is released, I must go download the latest version, tweak the filenames in the script (or I could just rename the downloaded installer), etc...


Is there some URL I could point to, or a method I am ignorant of maybe, to always download whatever is the latest version? That way I wouldn't need to manually rejigger things every so often.

Splitting this topic out to its own thread since it's not technically about PdN 4.0.9.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

There's no web service to directly query for the latest version or a download link directly to it, but ... you could probably just scrape this page, http://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html. That official download page itself hasn't really changed or moved in a long time. (I'm not promising that it won't, obviously)
