I was trying to think about how this is done, but cannot really get my head round it - wondering if anyone could share a minute.
I have a LAN Chat program for use with housemates on a LAN, and they then have it installed on their machine (a simple copy of the exe suffices). Now, when I make updates to this exe, is there a way I can make other copies of my program automatically update?
I can set registry settings and check that "my copy of chat program version number = master copy of chat program's version number", but then how would i go about editing the code within the exe?
My other train of thought was about perhaps the main exe is a simple script loader, where it simply reads from pre-compiled scripts (DLLs?) and all it does is copy latest versions of these. Therefore no need of copying the main exe is required.
Can anyone confirm this for me please? How would I go about transfering a module (or PAS) into a DLL file if that is the method I am to take?
Thanks in advance
