I'm going to develop a desktop tool that will require a database.
How would I go about doing it in a way that will allow me to post the code to a website so that all of the desktop applications see a new version and download the database.
I've never done this before so any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you for your input.
I don't think I've made my question very clear though.
The main thing I want to know is how can I create a local database that I can distribute with my software?
I only mentioned the update part because I wanted to know if a local database would be effected in any way.
Typically, people write a bit of code that checks with your website or webservice as to a new version being avaliable.
Good example would be a tool called fiddler--it is a http debugger so you can see it's update check request.
