Live updating software

P: n/a
Hi,

has anybody experience with how to update a software over eMail or
WebServer?

What would be the best way to do this? I'm fighting with this topic
quiet a bit, but I really want to implement this - would really help me.

Best Regards,

Martin

Tom and Martin,

If you have time to wait (or don't mind using beta software), you might
want to consider using ClickOnce as well, which is the latest offering from
MS for deployment of .NET solutions. For some more information, check out
the following links (watch for line wrap):

MSDN Magazine - Deploy and Update Your Smart Client Projects Using a Central
Server

http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...e/default.aspx

Microsoft Developer Network - Introducing Client Application Deployment with
"ClickOnce"

Hope this helps.
