The Binary File tab enables you to view information about the update binary file, to verify your ability to download the update, and to define command-line switches and return codes.
•Static binary file information: Displays information about the binary file that cannot be changed.
•Verify download: Downloads the update from the specified URL to a temporary location and verifies that the digest in the update matches the digest in the metadata. If the digest is approved and a local source folder is specified on the Local Source tab of the Settings dialog, the update will also be copied to that location and will not need to be downloaded again when the update is published. When the process is complete the file is deleted from its temporary location.
•Command line: Specifies command-line switches to use when the update is installed. For example, you might add switches that disable auto-update, that direct the update not to install the desktop shortcut, etc.
Certain updates will show setup.bat as the command line and none of the fields on this tab will be editable. This occurs if an update in the Patch for MEM catalog requires special non-standard installation procedures or if an update has been previously edited to include a custom install script. For these updates, it is not possible to alter the command-line options.
•Success return codes: Specifies the integer codes that the update returns if it is successfully installed and does not require a restart. This box is not displayed for .msi or .msp updates.
•Success pending reboot return codes:Specifies the integer codes that the update returns if it is successfully installed but requires a restart. This box is not displayed for .msi or .msp updates.
