I'm building a client/server application. I'm looking for a solution to distribute both the client and server applications. Whatever I end up doing must include an update service along the same lines as ClickOnce updates.
Basically I have 45-50 sites where the server application will be installed and there will be fairly frequent updates to both the server and client side applications. I'm happy enough using clickonce for the client side application. In fact that makes perfect sense as many of the users won't have admin rights.
But ClickOnce will not be suitable for the server side application as it will need to be installed into a specified folder on a server and the installer will need admin rights.
Is there anything out there that provides ClickOnce type update/installation functionality but with MSI like installation? The ability to do Automatic updating from a folder on a website would be ideal.

Happy enough to pay for a product as long as it's not unreasonably expensive.
Would consider code based solution if one exists.

Performance in games development is paramount: every microsecond counts to be able to do everything in less than 33ms (aiming at 16ms). C# foreach statement is one of the worst performance killers, and here I explain why.

Finds all prime numbers in a range requested and places them in a public primes() array. I've demostrated a template size of 30 (2 * 3 * 5) but larger templates can be built such 210 (2 * 3 * 5 * 7) or 2310 (2 * 3 * 5 * 7 * 11).
The larger templa…
