DevPower Web Version Check ActiveX Control Version 4.0.0 (01-Nov-01)

DevPower Web Version Check ActiveX Control

The WebVrChk ActiveX Control lets you easily add version checking to your applications across the internet or an intranet. Suggested usage is to periodically (e.g. on application start up or once a month) call the Check() method that performs a version check for you. If a different version is found the one specified, the control triggers the UpdateAvailable Event. This allows the flexiblity to prompt the user to download a newer version if one is available.

Version 4 adds support for parsing version information from XML files, more robust error handling and improved version number checking.

You are permitted to use the Web Version Check ActiveX Control a well as distribute the .OCX and associated files with your application royalty-free, provided you do not alter the .OCX file or take personal credit for the control.
Please see the DevPower Copyright Information for more details.

The control was written using Visual Basic 6.0 (Service Pack 3), which require certain runtime libraries to be installed. These libraries will be automatically installed by Internet Explorer or can be installed from the Runtime Download page.
