Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Represents detailed update information obtained through a call to CheckForDetailedUpdate.

Namespace: System.Deployment.Application
Assembly: System.Deployment (in system.deployment.dll)

public class UpdateCheckInfo
public class UpdateCheckInfo
public class UpdateCheckInfo

With UpdateCheckInfo, you can decide whether to upgrade your ClickOnce application based on information about the newest version. UpdateAvailable will return a Boolean value indicating whether there is a new update at all. The AvailableVersion property provides the version number of the new version, while MinimumRequiredVersion provides the earliest version that the user should have installed. IsUpdateRequired expresses whether the latest available update is required of the user. Finally, UpdateSizeBytes expresses the total size of the update.

The following code example uses UpdateAvailable to determine if there is a new application update, and IsUpdateRequired to determine whether to ask the user to install the update.

private void InstallUpdateSyncWithInfo()
{
    UpdateCheckInfo info = null;

    if (ApplicationDeployment.IsNetworkDeployed)
    {
        ApplicationDeployment ad = ApplicationDeployment.CurrentDeployment;

        try
        {
            info = ad.CheckForDetailedUpdate();

        }
        catch (DeploymentDownloadException dde)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("The new version of the application cannot be downloaded at this time. \n\nPlease check your network connection, or try again later. Error: " + dde.Message);
            return;
        }
        catch (InvalidDeploymentException ide)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("Cannot check for a new version of the application. The ClickOnce deployment is corrupt. Please redeploy the application and try again. Error: " + ide.Message);
            return;
        }
        catch (InvalidOperationException ioe)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("This application cannot be updated. It is likely not a ClickOnce application. Error: " + ioe.Message);
            return;
        }

        if (info.UpdateAvailable)
        {
            Boolean doUpdate = true;

            if (!info.IsUpdateRequired)
            {
                DialogResult dr = MessageBox.Show("An update is available. Would you like to update the application now?", "Update Available", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel);
                if (!(DialogResult.OK == dr))
                {
                    doUpdate = false;
                }
            }

            if (doUpdate)
            {
                try
                {
                    ad.Update();
                    MessageBox.Show("The application has been upgraded, and will now restart.");
                    Application.Restart();
                }
                catch (DeploymentDownloadException dde)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("Cannot install the latest version of the application. \n\nPlease check your network connection, or try again later. Error: " + dde);
                    return;
                }
            }
        }
    }
