    How to publish updates?

    I am using vb.net 2015, developing winform application.

    I develop on astandalone pc at home. Then I install it at the client with multiple users. What I do now is after publishing on my computer I copy the publish folder and put it on the network and each users copies it onto their computer

    I would like to be able to copy it to the network, and when the users stats the app it checks and updates itself from the shared folder on the server.

    How would I go about doing this?

    Thanks for reading.

    Are you using the publish functionality built into VS, i.e. ClickOnce?

    I use Publish which results in a folder called publish with the app in it. But I don't know how to get the users app to update from this.

    Open the Publish page of the project properties and get familiar with everything there. In particular, you would be interested in the Updates button. If you want more information about all the options on that page, press the F1 key to open the relevant Help topic.
