Front End Updater Utility by Peter Hibbs
http://www.rogersaccesslibrary.com/forum/front-end-updater-utility_topic409&SID=95z591za-z2d7-8cdcf1e8-f65571e4-e85e89ez.html This VB6 program is used to automatically update front-end database files on PCs on a network with the latest version. As the database developer you would save the latest front-end version into a folder on the Server PC and when the users next run the database application, the program will check the current version date and if the Server version is newer it will copy it to the user's PC and then run the database. The set up is simple, just create a folder on the Server to which all users have access and save the latest front-end file in it. Copy the FE Updater.exe file to the same folder as the front-end file on each PC and create a short cut to it from the desktop. The first time you run the FE Updater program you will need to locate the front-end file on the Server to run the database. After that the updates are done automatically. The attached Word document explains the procedure in detail.
