NetUpdate v2.04 Benefits

How long does it take you to distribute a new application update?

Now keep ALL your applications up-to-date, literally overnight. Software development is an evolutionary process. As soon as a new application is launched, developers start creating updates. Managing the update process can be overwhelming at the best of times. NetUpdate provides a flexible, easy solution to manage all your update requirements.

NetUpdate is a simple, yet comprehensive software update system ideally suited to support IT professionals, network administrators, software developers, kiosk vendors and technical service departments. Whether you need to keep the software on a fleet of computers up-to-date, or simply provide an update mechanism for software you are developing, NetUpdate is the only product you need.

NetUpdate uses a flexible, secure, and reliable client/server infrastructure to determine if an update is available, and downloads and installs all required files using trusted, industry-safe Internet or LAN protocols. Optionally, end users can be directed to a URL where more information about the update is available, and files can be downloaded from there.



Works seamlessly with Windows Vista
Since Windows Vista was released, many users have experienced problems when updating their applications. By default, Windows Vista does not allow the user to update applications without administrative permissions. Dealing with the UAC has been a headache to say the least. Often the user of the computer is the administrator, but has to deal with the exceptions and warnings anyway. NetUpdate installs as a Windows service, so it already has administrator rights. Whether updating applications, files, images or any kind of data, you will never receive another UAC warning when using NetUpdate for all your update requirements.

NetUpdate uses a flexible, secure, and reliable client/server infrastructure to determine if an update is available, and then downloads and installs all required files using trusted, industry-safe Internet or LAN protocols. Optionally, end users can be directed to a URL where more information about the update is available, and files can be downloaded from there.


Key benefits of using NetUpdate include:

     Cost Efficiency
     Flexible Architecture
     Industry Standard Protocols
     Easy Integration
     Royalty Free Distribution



Cost Efficiency
Managing software updates is a costly process. The time required by IT professionals and software vendors to keep their managed applications current can be considerable. Support for legacy installations can be challenging. NetUpdate significantly reduces the amount of time and cost involved in maintaining software versions, patches and updates. NetUpdate is ideally suited for kiosk vendors and software developers where their applications involve regular updates to things like product selection, retail pricing and promotions.

Flexible Architecture
Designed from the ground up to be flexible, yet feature rich. The easy-to-use NetUpdate manager provides all options to the developer in a comfortable Wizard driven interface. Create an unlimited number of application updates to check for everything from full-blown new software versions to simple configuration changes like retail pricing for an in-store kiosk. Depending on the type of update to be deployed, NetUpdate can replace the require files itself, run an external setup file, or simple redirect the user to a URL for more information.

Industry Standard Protocols
NetUpdate is built on the same trusted, dependable industry standards you currently rely on. All Internet communication is controlled by Microsoft's WinInet API used in today's standard Windows and Internet Explorer applications. NetUpdate supports all of the most common client/server communication protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and LAN (both UNC paths and mapped drives). Full support for proxy authentication, HTTP and FTP user authentication are built right in.

Easy Integration
Not everyone is a programmer. We understand that. For this reason, Net Update's visual development environment was designed to create advanced update systems without using a single line of code. All options are Wizard driven. And when finished, NetUpdate presents a complete file installation manifest detailing where to place the resulting files. With its innovative development environment, NetUpdate offers you a powerful, yet easy way to deploy your updates to your customers. The advanced customization capabilities of NetUpdates give you complete control of all the options available.

Royalty Free Distribution
If you are a single developer supporting a new application, our single developer license allows you to distribute the client agent files to an unlimited number of users. Alternatively, a corporate license allows you to distribute the client agent files to an unlimited number of computers supporting a multiude of applications within your organization. All without any additional cost.

Easily integrate any product update into your application or business processes. There is no other software of it's kind that is more flexible or as easy to use.

NetUpdate is the ONLY sensible choice!
