update.dll source

I'm wondering if anyone has the source (or a link to it) to the update.dll by kosacid. Our update server is running apache, but the dll doesnt seem to agree with it. Instead of sending a typical http request like
"GET /DATA/EQUIPMENT/goods.ini HTTP/1.1"

I end up with:
"..\\data\\equipment\\goods.ini"

which obviously doesnt work for a typical web server.
The files are on sourceforge but the actual source code seems absent.
We've implemented a updater.exe to be run before FL (it autostarts FL after updating) but apparently getting most of the players to run it is like pulling teeth.

any help locating the source would be greatly appreciated

I'm not sure where the source for this is, but if you plan to bundle this in a mod and want a really simple solution, DSUpdate is probably what you should look into.

http://forge.the-starport.net/projects/dsupdate/files

Discovery used to use this for several years, but it was quite annoying to make incremental patches with it, so we moved to a launcher of our own not too long ago.

From the moment you make servers invisible if you don't start the game through the launcher, people use it.

ya i took a quick at look at that one atm our autoupdater is custom coded, was designed to use the same crc checks as the updater built into hook with the update.dll so there wouldnt be any compatability issues, but guess that backfired lol...not a bad idea though nerfing the server listings, i was hoping to do it though without having to hit all the clients with a hammer to drive the point home

@Fenris_Wolf no source. This thing works strange with indirect connection to the internet. So try to ask Kosacid by email
