Webbrowser like dialog box with updater

I am in need of a updater function in my program. I have a basic updater but it does not seem to informative of the updates.I have checked everywhere for a control that allows you to load up a webpage within a dialog and let you update it.
If you want a example check out Revo Uninstaller at http://www.revouninstaller.com/
if you load up the program you can go into the updater and it shows a webpage with graphics as well as links and text.

Not sure what the problem is here.  Why don't you just embed an IE control and tell your code to display a remote page, eg http://www.yourserver.com/update

then you can change the page on your server.

Or have I misunderstood?

No problem.  Have a read of "Using MFC to Host a WebBrowser Control" at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa752046.aspx
