Project Description:
Hi,

First of all, it is not certain that this project will be made. I would like to hear if it would be possible and at what cost, and in what language it could be made.

The idea is same as behind Steam Workshop. So we need an application that would enable our visitors to download mods and get them installed via our own application. To not have to hence manually copy each file.

Features:
* certain files are added to the mod package that upon install would overwrite game files and create a backup of each for later uninstall of the mod
* icon is created on the desktop upon install that would be used to start the game with the mod AND check for new updates to the mod
* if updates are available it would offer update link to download it

So that is it. It needs to be able to communicate with our servers to recognize new version availability. But it won't work as a real time system tray application but just a very simple windows app.

This is of course hence meant for windows and I wrote language req for c++ but I have no idea which language would be best for it
Thank you
