Andreas M. has posted a nifty little tutorial for creating a version update check in your Add-In.
I want to show you the simplest form of an update check in less than 20 lines of C# code. Before we can have a look at the code we have to ask ourselves which steps are required to perform:
- Determine the version of our addin that is currently running
- Retrieve information about the latest version of our addin from the web
- Compare these two versions and decide whether the currently running version is outdated
Nice work, and very simple to implement.
