SmartClient + WindowsForms library


G

Guest

We have a windows forms library that is being deployed as a smart client.
Everything works ok, but only one issue: everytime the user uses the
application the system checks to see if there is a new version available. Is
there any way we can specify on the client that such a check should only be
done once a day or somehow else to prevent the checking everytime?

Thank you,

Can you explain to me how to create an app that can download an MSI and
update itself? I know how to create the MSI, and I know how to write code to
download the MSI, but what then? Do I just run the MSI from my running
application and the framework does the rest?

When I say the rest, I would expect the framework to shut down my currently
running app, install the MSI, then restart my app.

Hi,

I too need this solution. I have created MSI and installed the smart
clients in client machines. Now I need to update it. Currenly I am
doing that using appupdater component. That works fine, but I need to
do this using MSI file for updates. I want to perform some actions in
the client machine before updating the application which is not
possible with appupdater component or I don't know how to use it to do
it. Can anyone throw us an idea or suggestion for this?

Thank you in advance,
Niama.
