Update downloads page, for version 2.6.2 of Octo.exe


Can you please update the http://octopusdeploy.com/downloads , so we can use --version=latest parameter as discussed here: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/1390

Currently it is pointing at https://download.octopusdeploy.com/octopus-tools/

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for getting in touch.

Octo.exe has slightly different versioning, 2.6.1 (linked) has that change.


Hi Damia,

Thanks for getting bad. Does this not work for “create-release” ??
I’ve tried with the current version, but i’m getting this error (Running it from a CI Server). When specifying a version number it works.

Octo.exe create-release --project=“TestPorj” --version=latest --deployto=“Test” --waitfordeployment --server=http://octopus:80/api --apiKey=*****

Hi Thomas,

Sorry I kept forgetting to get back to you on this. The latest option is for deploy release, not create. When deploying we know what the latest is but we need a version specified to create one.
What are you using as your build process and I can give you some pointers to get this running.
