A way of performing application updates, which allows for faster start time?

In a typical C# project you have the option to check for new versions of the program after starting it. The updates will then not be installed until next time the program is run.

I have run through the step-by-step deployment guide, and was unable to find any indication that this possibility exists in an Add-in Express project.

Is it possible to do something like this?

While CheckForUpdates is neat, it can also be a bit annoying for users to see the box that checks for a new version every time they open Excel.
