Automatically Update Programs or Files from a Remote Location
Version Compatibility: Visual Basic 5
In the example, as it is written, the program compares the version of the application itself to information in the update.inf file on the remote machine. However, this is for testing purposes only and the program does not actually update itself. To use the program in a production setting, you have to set up an FTP site, put the appropriate information in the update.inf and update.ini files, and change the code to refer to the file or program that you would actually want to update.
