Automatic update of word toolbar app

I currently have all of my "normal" vb.net apps setup so that each time a users starts the app, it checks to see if a new version is available. If I have made anew version then the app brings up a "Update" form and the new vb.net apps are uploaded to the users system and they now have the new version. Basically I'm just doing an HTTP "pull" on a .exe file.

Since my Word toolbar app is not a .exe can something like this still be done. Can I just upload a new .dll (if I don't make any changes to the buttons on my commandbar) or is an update more involved?

Hi John.

You can't just upload a new .dll. You should carry out the unregistration/registration of an add-in .dll. I think, in this case the best way is to upload a .msi file.
