Hi, I have always wonder how do you make an application to update itself, but now I'm about to publish an application and updating the software could be an issue with too many users. I had thought about sharing the executable in a network share and when I needed to update I would just replace the excutable on non working hours, however I would like to know if there's a better way to do it, or a link to an article or tutorial would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you.

You may want to look into ClickOnce as it makes the process about as easy as it can get.
