I have multiple users accessing a split database. I would like to automatically update the client side without having to go to each workstation. I found an old version of a program called AutoUpdater and was wondering is there was something else available.

Expert thenelson has a sample on his website (first sample listed):

In a nutshell, what makes this work is a version number associated with the front end.  If a user's local front end has a version number that is less than a "current" version number stored in a shared file, an update is triggered.
