2. You can run the application from a shared folder.
3. You can have a batch file that copies the files from a share folder to a local folder and then start the application.

For this you will need an application that compares the timestamp of the files. If you want to create your own, have a look at the August 2003 issue of the UTMag (http://www.utmag.com/ViewPageIssue.aspx). There was an article written by Rex Willis titled "Create a Stub Program for .NET"

But I think that you better use ClickOnce
