     This program lets your search for a text file on the internet and compare versions with the application you have installed. It does acctually download a dummy file called 'Update.exe' which you can set where to download to and run it afterwards. I made this code for a new program I am making because I couldnt find any good ones on PSC. BlessedMan this is for you: Edit: Oh yer and dont look at the interface because its a skin I have on my PC (WindowsBlinds), LOL! - Some extra help for anyone who needs it: I have "version.ver", "news.txt" and "update.exe" uploaded too; http://homepage.ntlworld.com/hughes.clan/tracker/, so you will have to change the lines that have this URL in it to point to your files ( go to the code view of "frmDownload" and press CTRL+F on your keyboard now type in http://homepage.ntlworld.com/hughes.clan/tracker/ press 'Find Next' and change the bit it finds to your file ( on your site ), then go to "frmUpdate" and do the same, now go to "frmDownload" form view and change the 'Text' property of the object "txtWebsite" to fit your websites file ( you can find the "txtWebsite" object above the 'version' text in the lower left corner, ( little wite box ) ) Hope this makes sence and helps you all. [U][P][D][A][T][E][S][.][.][.][Updated - The version of the program is now set from 'major.ver' and 'minor.ver' files, in the ZIP file ( 'major.ver' holds the App.Major version / 'minor.ver' holds the App.Minor version ) Just change these files to the version that your program is and have fun][Updated - Extra help in description][Updated - Changed frmMain error!][Updated - Now with comments on nearly every line!]

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
