AutoUpdate of application

P: n/a
Hi all,
I have created an application in C#.
The application will be distributed to many users.
Some new features will be added later to the app.
Now i want to create a functionality that will be like
Whenever the app starts, it will first check on the server for
files with new version and should replace the existing with new version
files. I want the app to automatically download the new dll's and
replace the existing ones with these new ones.

Any reference or link or sample code in this regard will be
appreciated.
Thanks & Regards,
Pramod

Hi Pramod,

You could do this in code (don't have any ready-made examples, sorry), but
if you are using C# 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005, you could also check out a
technology called ClickOnce:

Here's another article about the technology:

I'm not saying this is the optimum solution just for your application, but
you might wish to check ClickOnce out before committing to additional
development.

Hi Pramod,
You can use Micorsoft application updater block(2.0). ClickOcne is good for
this purpose but ClickOnce is available in .NET 2.0 only;
