I'm currently working a some kind of tool that you can ship along with your DBP software title. It will ensure that your users will always have the latest version by contacting a central FTP server, looking for an update there and if available, the app will download it.
All the user will have to do is install the update but I'm thinking of implementing that in the app too.

Anyone interested in such a tool? This way I know if I have to continue with setting up this central FTP server and getting it to work.

bye dudes!

Hmmm... I wonder who did it ?

Anyway, if your interesting, mine :

A) Works using HTTP
B) Allows messages to be displayed from a downloaded file
C) Alternative download locations can be provided (however, you must implement some security on your programs)
D) Automatically installation (ie running of an EXE file) if need be - again, some checking of the file needs to be performed.
