Hello Joseph,

While it doesn't answer your specific question, Craig Boyd has a very nice "application update" exe and project on his blog...


...which outlines a method for auto-updating your applications. I've used similar approach for years but to be honest his application looks much nicer and I will probably adopt it myself :-)

Doesn't solve your immediate problem but well worth a look
