Need to locate licenced/shareware/freeware code/component for adding Autoupdate feature to an exe and and unmanaged dll
Posted on 2004-11-24
I have an application which is a pair of an unmanaged ActiveX dll and an exe that get installed on client/user machines.
I need to add an autoupdate functionality to my dll/exe combo, so that they can constantly ping the server and autoupdate themselves (like toolbars do), when a new update arrives on server.
Is there any existing freeware/shareware/licensed codebase or component which can enable this functionality in my application. It could be in form of a code which can be embedded in existing dll/exe or could be shipped as a third component with my application (adding new components is not a problem).
Please guide me to any source which can enable this functionality, without much time spent on coding.
