Abstract

One of the problems in modern software development is the problem of introducing changes and fixes to the deployed software products in an automated fashion thus not requiring the end user to download the redundant product modules that had not been changed and performing manually the uninstall/install/check sequence. In this paper a method for building an automated update system has been suggested. The automated update system guarantees that the end user receives the latest changes and fixes to the product thus maintaining smooth experience from the software product. In this paper one of the methods for implementation of an automatic software update system for desktop applications is considered.
