Ketarin Maintains Redistributable Setup Installers Up to Date
March 5, 2010 | Filed under Software;
For computer users that normally goes through reinstalling of operating system to get the fast feeling or perhaps because of testing out a lot of software and causing the computer to slow down, they normally keep the setup files such as Firefox, Windows Live Messenger on the hard drive so that they don’t need to redownload the file every time. This save them time and also bandwidth.
The setup file that is kept on the computer can get outdated too and as computer experts always advice to use the latest stable version as it contains new features and also bug fixes. Checking all the setup installers if they’ve been updated or not is a tedious task and time consuming as well. There is no point in doing that manually all the time as it is a waste of time.
Ketarin will be able to help you out by automatically update setup packages. As opposed to other tools, Ketarin is not meant to keep your system up-to-date, but rather to maintain a compilation of all important setup packages which can then be burned to disc or put on a USB stick. Basically, it monitors the content of web pages for changes and downloads files to a specified location. Currently, you can either rely on a service based on FileHippo, or you can define your own rules, even using regular expressions (for advanced users).
Once you’ve got Ketarin setup properly, you can run a check on all the setups to see if they’ve been updated or not.
