View Thread: Suggestion: Windows Update Foundation

    Do you need this when you have ClickOnce?
    Its in .Net 2.0 so is already part of Vista and has most of the features you are looking for.

    It only checks for updates when you start the application, it does not sit in the background, but how often do you need to update an application you are not using?

    Perhaps ClickOnce should be extended so that updateable applications register themselves with a central process the periodically checks for them, but thats about the only thing you would need to add.
