Hi,

I have in cases like this created a second update application. I
would use process.start to start the updater application and xcopy the
updates. The updater would process.start the application back up.

Microsoft has the Updater application block to help with this.

Visual studio 2005 click once deployment will also help

In the way as you are asking it, is the software which has this mostly
quealified as a "virus".

You can see if there is already an instance from your program running.
