Version Updater - 32 bit (version 3.0) - currently in Beta

This is a shareware Visual Basic program which (via an INI file) controls the automatic updating of applications that have already been deployed. While initially developed for use with Visual Basic/VBA programs, it can be used with programs written in almost any language. It can also be used with 16 bit programs (running on Windows 9x or NT).

To utilize Version Updater:

Add a version checking function to you application (sample code is provided).
When your application starts, the version checking function compares the application version to the latest version (in a server based in file).
If the server has a newer version, Version Updater is launched and waits for your application to quit.
Based on information in the INI file, Version Updater will update your application.

Version Updater has the capability to copy files, run programs, register DLL's, etc.

application executable (verupdate.exe)
