Auto-Update Service

It would be nice if we could load a version on the RUT server and the host auto-downloads. This would alleviate us trying to "PUSH" a new version and the host can "PULL" a new version when we decide it's ready by placing it on the server. Different folders would indicate MSI or 1-Click.

The viewer Icon could change alerting us of the update and allows us to decide/schedule when to initiate the install... like in the middle of the night. On failure, it rolls-back so we can still connect. Reports status in viewer.

I moved the topic to feature requests.

The auto-update is a complicated topic that needs to be dealt with care. We will certainly be improving the update process in the future and using RU Server as a central "coordinating hub" is a good idea. Thanks!

It would be a Good Thing if we could update a remote's RU host from the Viewer control panel.

You actually can. This is called Remote Install tool.
