Update installed VB 2010 Express code

I need to make a change to an installed VB 2010 Express utility I wrote.  What is the method for updating the code?  Do I republish, uninstall, and reinstall?  Or are there just some files I can replace?

How did you "publish" your code? Did you simply copy/paste the .exe and any .dll files to some location, or did you actually use the "Publish" option?

When you published, did you select the "The application will check for updates..." option when you were publishing?

@kaufmed Since I didn't check the update locations box what are my options?  Can I just replace the .exe file with the new one?

I think you may have to republish the utility with that checkbox, uninstall the existing version and reinstall.
