Auto Update Service

Does anyone know of a good auto update service. Using .NET 2.0 C#. I do
not want to use InstallShields, even though that is who we use to create
setups. There sales policies are starting to drive me nuts and I want
nothing more to do with them. I will still their setup programs and demo
shield but that is it.

Thanks,

Eric Renken

Eric,

Are you distributing a purely managed application? If so, have you
considered ClickOnce?

Sorry this is a commercial application/off the shelf. In my opinion
ClickOnce just isn't right for something like this.

Application Updater Block has worked for me in the past - however I had
to make several modifications to make it work for me (allow for non msi
setups, the way it checks for updates, and a few other things) however I
havn't yet tried to port it over to 2.0 (was going to try my hand at
making my own first since aub was just a pain my my back the last few
months)

It's at least a good place to start if you feel like doing your own
solution.
