I have an Access app used by everyone in our company. It is a front end to our SQL database. It gets changed regularly and needs deploying to each client that uses it (i.e. coping to the C: drive then opening)

Does anyone know of a neat solution to this?

One of the better tools out there is this:

Been around for years, has nice features, and gets the job done without a lot of hassel. Used to be free, but is no longer.  Still well worth the price though.

I should point out that there are other FE updaters out there, some of which are free.

Also what you want to do can be accomplished with something as simple as a batch file.
