I want to add a simple version check to my app... What would be the easiest way to get the contents of a file (will contain the newest version number) off my web server? I could then compare the two numbers and tell if they had the most current version. Any help would be great.

Thanks

That seems to work for comparing the versions... but my main question was how to get the data from a file off my web server. It's this file that will contain the latest version infomation that will be used to compare agaist the version the user has. Sorry if my orginal question didn't make this clear.

Thanks
How about this piece of code???
----------
var
  F : TextFile;
  str : string;
begin
  AssignFile(F, 'C:\windows\desktop\test.txt');
  Reset(F);
  ReadLn(F,str);
  CloseFile(F);
  ShowMessage(str);
end;
------------
