Project Description

Create a barebones [url removed, login to view] application as follows:


1. the "Client" program is to be installed on multiple PCs

2. When the client program is loaded, it checks for a new version of the program which is stored in a folder on a remote MS Server (credentials to be provided).

3. If an new version of the program is in the folder on on the MS Server

b. The updated version is downloaded and automatically installed on the user's PC

c. The updated version is loaded on the user's PC for use.

b. the second label displays the text in the "color" column in the first row of the existing "colors" table in an existing MS SQL Express database on the remote Windows server (credentials to be provided.)

For demonstration purposes, an updated version of the client program will have a third label which displays the color in the second row of the color table. Store the updated version in a separate folder so that I may test the original program on multiple PCs and then replace the original program with the updated version and test the update functionality.
