Posted on 2007-10-21

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
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.

    >> I have checked everywhere for a control that allows you to load up a webpage within a dialog and let you update it

    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

    then you can change the page on your server.

    Or have I misunderstood?
