With CheckForUpdateCompletedEventArgs, 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 on the computer. 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.
