UpdateLive


Here's how it works:

  1. You include the UpdateLive utility with your install kit.

  2. You place the individual files you want kept up to date on your web server. You can also add advertising messages and update history.

  3. When the customer runs your install kit, you call the UpdateLive utility:

    • UpdateLive checks to see if the customer can make an internet connection.

    • UpdateLive checks the web site, checks to see which products (if any) need updating - files can be checked by version number, date or size.

    • UpdateLive shows the customer what is new and presents your list of changes, then asks if he/she wants to get that update (again this can be done invisibly without asking).

    • UpdateLive downloads the appropriate files and displays specified "advertisment" information ( here we show "ad for MetaDraw - this is customisable for your own message ).

    • UpdateLive creates a backup directory (to allow reversal of the process).

    • UpdateLive copies new files to their destination.

    • UpdateLive registers any OCX's if necessary, runs any Exe's if necessary and tells the user everything is ready.
    • Customer can cancel updating of a separate product or entire update session.

    • UpdateLive displays update log.

  4. You can also call UpdateLive from your application to check for updates on a periodic basis (every 30 days, etc), or add a Shortcut to the Windows Start Menu to allow the customer to call the UpdateLive utility directly when he or she wants.

  5. UpdateLive keep itself up-to-date. If there is a new version of UpdateLive on Bennet-Tec`s site, it will be installed automatically.
