updating a program

I have a program I'm working on for work and I have NO idea on the best way to implement updates for it as its to be installed at remote locations.  Right now I have the program check a FTP to see if there is a new version of the program sitting there, if so it downloads it, starts up another small program that just deletes the first and replaces it with the newly downloaded program than starts it up.  Is there a more effecient way of updating programs than this?  I'm using VB6
