I use the launcher method in Android all the time. There is no problem downloading an updated stack. If you mean updating the launcher app, then you need to change the build number in the new apk. That way an installation will replace the old version and retain all user data. If you don't change the build number then the user does need to uninstall first and all user data will be lost.bangkok wrote: ↑Tue Mar 03, 2020 4:21 am)
Personally, I use the launcher method.... but with a local file.
It's only when there is an update available (I use a MySQL table for that, in which I store a simple version number that will be compared to the version number in the stack on the user's PC), that the launcher will fetch the updated stack (from a FTP server, on the local network) and then write it into the directory, on the user's PC.
Only one big regret : impossible to do that... on Android !
That sucks a lot. Each time the user has to desinstall and reinstall the new apk file... Boring.
If LC could work on this, it would be great.
Android uses the build number to determine whether a download is an update.
