Hi all,
in one of my client due to the network traffic we are keeping the fmx files in each and every computer to access the application by the user.So that they are getting doing little bit fast rather then keeping in central server more over the client is also prefare to go like that only.
Now my big problem is if i want to keep any update fmx i had to copy manually in every PC which is becoming very big problem ,So is there any chance that when i open my application it had to check in a defined folder for update files based on the file date and time,If any updates it get it had to bring the file to the local defined folder in the PC.

Thanks in advance

WebForms.
Forget Client-Server. WebForms was introduced to overcome this problem. Although CS-computing is fast at runtime, it is a nightmare for maintenance/upgrades.
You have a choice: either use a centralized mechanism, probably causing lower performance, or keep the maintenance-headaches.
You can't have both (without changing network infrastructure)

Start the Forms application from a 'bat' script on the PC and in that script download all the files everytime you start or only get the ones that are 'newer'.
