Automatically check software version


(LJ) #1

I have a client that produces (and regularly updates) exploration software which we make available for download on the website.

He has asked if there is any way of automatically checking his current software version against that which is currently on the server - reading between the lines I think he wants to avoid simply looking at the version number on the download page in case there is an error. hence we are looking at some kind of parameter check within the software itself.

No idea where to start so any thoughts on how to achieve this welcome

Is asking about “clients” who have downloaded “exploration software” to be able to check for updates?
I think it’s going to depend on the software, Platform, etc.
