Deploy/Maintain local application using SharePoint 2010

Is it possible to store a compiled exe file on SharePoint 2010, allow Users to connect to SP, download the file locally and run it, and have SP keep the file up to date with the version that is on SP?  Basically, I’d like to use SP 2010 to maintain the latest exe on the client machine.

What I have is a team site where I’m planning on storing a non-web compliant access db compiled into an exe and as changes are made to the application and recompiled I would do something like check out the current exe and check in the new exe and have SP automatically replace the Users local exe.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance,

Jim

Rajendra,

Thank you for your response.  Is the blocked file type farm wide or can it be set for an individual team site?  Also, one of the requirements was that the local file, once setup, be updated automatically, no User notification or intervention at all.

Thanks,

Jim
Hi,

It is farm wide. You can write a custom windows job to monitor file and upload it in sharepoint, if changed.

Cheers.

Raj,

Upload to SP is not the problem, I need the file deployed to all of the Users who have the old version locally.  Can a windows job do this or is this native to SP?

Thanks,

Jim
You can write a SharePoint Exe to upload local files to SharePoint and schedule it as Windows Job. SharePoint Exe compares the configurable local folder files with SharePoint files. In case of changes, it uploads. I hope, it is clear. Please note it is custom utility to be custom coded.
However, it is not much effort.

Cheers.

Raj,

Again, I don't need it to "Upload" (from Client to SP Server).  I need it to "Download" (from SP Server to Client).  Can this be done with a custom utility?  Is a "Download" utility just as simple as an "Upload" utility?

Thanks,

Jim
