I want to create a batch file to auto-update software when the version number on the users computer grows old. I can do all the file transfers just fine with a batch file (using ftp etc) but my problem is I dont know how to determine if the version is old or not. I need to check the version against a ver file on my ftp server but nothing I try seems to work!
I originally thought to download the ver file and then use the "<" operator to pipe in the ver number as a parameter to my batch file but this doesnt work (the input doesnt happen). So....any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
