clickOnce; check for updates

I am going to deploy a simple forms app using clickOnce. I do want to take advantage of functionality to check for updates. The only two options available in the Updates section of the publishing tab are 1.)before program starts, & 2.) after program starts. Neither of these will work for my situation. When my app is started, the computer is never connected to the internet. It is always connected about 2 minutes later.

What I would like to do is either create a menu option that the user could click to check for updates. Or, create automatic functionality that would initiate a check for updates 5 minutes after the program starts.
Could I Programmatically do this? If so please point me in the right direction (help docs or namespace/classes used)

I'm using c#, .net 2.0

Thanks.

The better way to check the update if to check (using a timer) if there's internet available. After that disable the timer and run the update check.

The timer will only trigger some times.

Thanks, actually I already have a timer pinging periodically to check and initiate connection so I'll do just that; sense when connected & check for updates then using the documentation you directed me to.

Thanks
