Auto-Update functionality

I've been assigned a task to write an auto-update utility for our customers
to update their software (n-tier dotnet , db app). I've written custom
installers and WMI based installs using installshield.

I'm really not for "re-inventing the wheel". Is there a 3rd party solution
for this?

Hi Billg,

MS has an updater application block which might help:

Hi Billg,

Sorry :(...error while taking the link...
Here's the correct one:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/dnbda/html/
updater.asp

There a number of good application blocks and guides in the MS patterns site
@ www.microsoft.com/patterns
Maybe you would like to check them as well.
