Smile Fully automatic Calibre autoupate solution (Windows)


because i love Calibre and because i like to keep it always up2date, i try to install every new version. And thanks to the great developers there are a lot of it. What me really annoyed was the fact to go to the website, download, start installation, click, click and start calibre again. That's why i started up NSIS and created a small autodownloader for the task.

At the moment it does the following:
- End calibre nicely (calibre.exe --shutdown-running-calibre)
- Download latest 64Bit Version to temp
- Installs via msiexec silently
- Starts calibre.exe (so you need to have it on %path%)

Attached are both the compiled .exe and the script if you like to compile it yourself. You just need to install NSIS from

Have fun. PS: Maybe i can include this into a plugin for calibre.
