I need some kind of remote updater? Just like a virus checker has.
Posted on 2004-10-24
I have some small apps, excel documents and movies that I want to package up together.
This is nothing to complicated in its self.
But once the bundle has been deployed onto the user computers, the users will need to periodically update these movies, apps and excel documents remotely, just like a virus checker would...
I.E when the updater is launched, it will compare the age of the current bundle of apps etc against any newer versions on the remote server, if the remote version is newer then the updater will download and overwrite the old bundle.
I have AdminStudio, can I make such an updater with this program?
Or can you tell me how I can fast track this kind of project by purchasing a third party product?
Or can you tell me how to write such a client server application updater similar to a virus checker updater??
I will need to include some kind of logon/password for the updater.
I will be awarding maximum points for a solution , and will be happy to award assisted points for any useful help given.
