Environment Variables Added to Autopatcher

Postby Whatacrock » Tue May 06, 2014 11:05 am

I know I have mentioned this in private chat previously but thought it may be a good idea for a public topic.

I have encountered in my travels software which installs in areas that make use of the "Environment Variables". Some of these tools other users may find of interest.

It would be fine to add these to the URL Listing for Freeware, but feel that they would be better suited to a package.

One in particular that I speak of is f.lux -- Computer screens, tablets and mobile phones emit full spectrum light around the clock, just like the sun. Exposure to blue light at the wrong time of day can keep you awake later and interfere with the quality of your sleep. f.lux tries to help this by removing blue and green light to help you wind down in the evenings.
This installs to the location C:\Users\********\AppData\Local\FluxSoftware\Flux.

There are others and consideration should be given to make use of in the original or BETA version of Autopatcher. We already use some custom ones that are in the coding of Autopatcher, thus can this be expanded upon...

I have thought about adding this feature. If you so desire it, I can look into it.
