I've read that there is a way to use  Publish  within Visual Studio to have my app, when executed, check a folder on the network for updates, prompt the user to inform that of such updates, and then update the app.  Can this be done?  Does it work for DLL's as well th at are  used by  the app?  if so, how can I do this?

What you are describing is the ClickOnce feature built into Visual Studio.

You can use this link to find more information about the feature: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/t71a733d.aspx

When publishing a click once installer, one of the things you can do is specify the minimum version that the user can use. To always force the user to download the latest, you need to set this number to the version that is being published/deployed.
