    Plugin Installer / Updater Application

    I am learning to do .net programming, and have tried a shot at a plugin installer / updater application to assist with installing the latest plugins on PC. Its a work in progress, but I hope its a start towards making it easier for people to use the LUA Plugin system with LOTRO.

    If people end up using it, I could use the support of plugin authors by following certain conventions when making and uploading their plugins for distribution. Details can be found on LOTRO Interface website below.

    Thank you.

    I just want to say this tool rocks! It works easily and very fast. This will be great for keeping plugins up to date!

    This is a fantastic tool for the people who want to stick their feet in the plugin pool to test the waters.

    Question: Is there a place where it archives the versions of the zip files it downloads? I'd like to keep a backup of each and every zip it downloads if I could.

    It caches them in window temporary folder. This is a hidden folder on windows for your account. It differs between Win xp and Win vista/7.

    For windows xp it is @

    C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Local Settings\Temp

    OK, thanks. Any chance you could make an option to change that directory? Just a way to edit it. Many of the archives are useful to read the extra commands and stuff for the plugins plus I just like to have them stored in a safe spot.

    That shouldn't be a problem. Thank you for feedback.

    This is a great tool, thank you very much!

    I'd like to second ChromiteSwiftpaw's request - customizability always goes a long way in my book.
    I would also like the spacer between the table view and the description field on the 'add' tab to be movable - three lines are a bit thin for a description field.
    It would also be helpful if the 'add' tab would filter out any entries that are already installed locally.
