Project Description
This is a standalone hack of Updater Application Block that doesn't require Enterprise Library.
It reads a RSS with an updates information from a web server, and, if needed, downloads application updates and installs them.
The updates must be in form of Windows Installer packages (MSI).

Author: Victor Sergienko

Credits for code pieces to:
  • Updater Application Block (mercilessly chopped down);
  • WiX ClickThrough component (for FeedBuilder class code);
  • Kent Boogart's HttpDownloader;
(still need to check license compatibility for all of these)

Please pay attention to DotUpdater-doc.zip, that is a quickstart guide hacked out of working code.

Additional information on starting a new project is available here: Project Startup Guide.
