June 30, 2014 • I have been "offline" for a month.
After returning from a long vacation the flu hit me really hard.
I'll try and catch up with answering my e-mail the next couple of days.

• Simon Laird pointed out some long overdue maintenance on my "Wait page": TIMEOUT is now a standard Windows command, so a Resource Kit is no longer required.
Besides that, I included TCP/IPv6 support to the PING delay trick.

Thanks Simon
May 21, 2014 • Some bugs and limitations were fixed in UpdateCheck.hta, see the product page for full details.
Several new programs were added to the INI file.
May 20, 2014 • Another minor update for UpdateCheck.hta: if the latest version could not be found, "Not Found" will be displayed in the "Latest Version" column, instead of just "0".
Besides, in that case, a download button will be available, with caption "Check" instead of "Download".
While at it, I also added several new programs to the INI file.
May 19, 2014 • A minor update for UpdateCheck.hta: if no INI file is found, the web version will be downloaded without generating an error message first.
May 18, 2014 UpdateCheck.hta is a new (HTA) GUI version of UpdateCheck.vbs.
Besides checking for updates of listed programs, as the command line VBScript version does, the HTA also features automatic script updates, and (manual) configuration file updates and modifications.
The HTA and VBScript versions can share the same INI file.
