Re: SMTube : new version on OS4Depot

AmiUpdate is used to update software which is installed already and run once at least. AutoInstall scripts usually relies on the APPDIR: feature to find the path to the software. Such path doesn't exist if you haven't run the software ever before.

Amiga software usually comes with dedicated installers to use. If the software package/archive doesn't contain any installers then you can just copy it to anywhere and just use it from there. Large software packages are different matter which might be under GPL. People don't want to mix such packages together if they don't want to put their own software under GPL. So users have to install such packages separately. Also installers of Amiga software are not usually made to download any extra packages on your behalf.
