FYI new version of Auto FE Updater

P: n/a
This utility is designed to automatically update the front end MDE and associated
files from the server to the client workstation or directory on the server. The
utility will, if required, create the directory on the workstation, copy files to
workstation, create a shortcut on the desktop and update registry keys. It will then
start the Access MDE/MDB. If none of this is required the next time you run this
utility then all those steps are bypassed and it just starts the Access MDE/MDB.

Updates:
better error handling and file existence checks (to reduce your confusion and
emails to me. <smile>)
environment variables support
%user%, %workstn% and environment variables supported in command line
UNC paths support
Master workstation INI file entry to allow you the developer to have a button
which you click to open the INI file if an error message is displayed
CreateShortCutOnCommonDesktop option
