I found this from my coding buddies:
http://news.ffevo.com/home/thisiswhywecanthavenicethings

I know it's not 14 related in a sense, but it drives something home for me. Downloading files without a prompt.

Log/Parse/Win Mod for 14, will download my update program to allow it to shutdown the app and do the update.

I have removed that. No automatic updates will happen, the only thing it will now is poll for a text file on the server and check and see if that version is greater than what your running. If it is, a box will say:
"Hey, there's an update, go yourself and get it."

I'm uploading the new versions, they will be available in about 20 minutes or so.

So long as the box will actually say exactly that I'll be fine.

Although I suppose it should say, "go get it yourself" rather than, "go yourself and get it." But, either way. Maybe it should say, "Ho! There is an update! Go thyself and retrieve it!"

lol...

autoUpdates.currentversion = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version.ToString();
autoUpdates.fname = "LogModXIV";

if (autoUpdates.checkUpdates("LogModXIV"))
{
MessageBox.Show("Update Available! For Full Functionality, Please Goto https://secure.ffxiv-app.com/products/ & Download The Latest Release.", "Information!");
}

In either case all new files have been uploaded, with automatic function removed.

I think I had a aneurysm. Its all techno-babble to me. I read the topic in the link and it says something about a virus then goes all techno-babbly again. Is this something I should be concerned about, or am I safe as long as I don't go fiddling with powers better left untouched?

Translation:

"Due to some dodgy geezer making his app download shady things, I have now made it so my app does not auto-update silently but now prompts you that an update is available and you should get it."

Basically, the OP is saying "to prove I am legit and not like this guy, I have disabled the thing he was exploiting on my mod".

To the OP: Can you include a URL in the textfile you read, so that on msgbox you can select to be taken to the download page? Appreciate the transparency, but you should make it a little easier for your users :)
