IncUpdate assumes all files on the server are up to date. It will not check the version numbers since not all files have a version number property. If a file on local is not same as the one on
server, then it will be updated.

What customers say

  • You are doing an AWESOME job. I am just amazed at how quickly you were able to turn-around and fix some of the minor issues I had reported within such a short amount of time. The customer service I have received from you is outstanding! Keep up the excellent work.
    — Andrew from Nikiware, Inc.
  • You have create a fantastic application to update an application. I was at first a little sceptic about “Create an Update-Handling in ten minutes”, but you have done all to make it easy for a small developer. — from Rolf
  • Wanted to let you know that I have found your product to be extremely useful to me as a developer. In the throes of finishing and releasing a set of new products, there are always a few last minute changes that have to be made, and unfortunately, by the time they are found, it is difficult to get the latest version out to a group of people that may or may not have registered and gotten on the mailing list. Your product (IncUpdate) has freed my time from answering support calls and allowed me to concentrate on getting the problems fixed. Turn-around time is basically two minutes, just finish testing, build the final release, and run your program. Then post on the web that a new release is available. I have had some problems with the program (MS XML got corrupted on my development machine) and you have provided excellent support.
