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?

I used 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.
