Retrieve the version number from internet of my application
Posted on 2004-09-15
I have to retrieve the version number that is uploaded in an internet page of my application to compare with the version I'm using (this is what it has to do when the user works with it).
So my question is a little bit long (the answer). I need to know how to connect to a Internet page, what is the most useful way to consult the version (a text file, HTML page, database (only nedded for this) ...) and how I can read this information. Everything in Visual Basic code.
Thanks for your help in advance, it would be very apreciated (I need it for today :-( ).
