Android - new version of file in assets\internal\

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a text file which I need to load from my app on Android. So I put it in Deployment Manager, remote path = assets\internal\ (tried assets\internal too).

 

For the first time, it works fine - file is deployed and I can read it in my app from tPath.Combine(tPath.GetDocumentsPath, TestFileName);

 

But, when I update the file and deploy again, my application still sees the old version of it. In Deployment Manager, there is a column named Overwrite, I have set it to Always.

When I uninstall and deploy again, application has access to new version of the file.

 

Looking to System.StartUpCopy.pas, it seems that it never overwrites existing files.

 

Please how to solve it? I need my application to be able to read actual version of the file. I probably could change the name of the file each time I make a change in it, but I do not like this way because I will certainly sometimes forget to rename it.

 

Kind regards,

 

Karel

Hmm, for now "solved" for deployed file MyFile.txt on app start:

- if exists, delete MyFile2.txt

- rename (deployed) MyFile.txt to MyFile2.txt

- in the app, use MyFile2.txt

I have had a lot of problems like this in past ; I solved them by downloading the files on boot, with a version id management.

I use this approach, too.
