Installing a program from the web


G

Guest

Currently, when I want to install my program, I publish it to my computer and
then zip it to the web. This works well except many times on an upgrade, it
iwll not remove the old program as it loads the upgraded version as well.
What I would like to do is to send the build right to the web, which I have
done before, but when I run the .exe file, it does not find the other files
that are in the same directory and therefore, will not load. Any ideas on
what the problem is? Also, what is the trick to have an application check my
website for the availability of an upgrade? Thanks in advance.

Only changes, not all app?

Run where?

I'd recommed to use Update Application blocks or ClickOnce

I am using click once and it copies 3 files and a folder to the web site.
One of them is setup.exe which I thought would be the file you want to start
with but that nor any of them will succesfully load the program. Any ideas?

I thought of more. What should I do after I send the built file to the web?
How then is the program installed?
