Update process is too intrusive

Using a modal dialog to prompt the user on startup to update the application is an extremely intrusive method of delivering updates.

You guys are continuously delivering updates, so the user is continuously being prompted to update every time they open the application.

It's an extra click and a chance to accidentally begin updating, when the user may be in a situation where they need to connect to a server as quickly as they possibly can.

There are many other options you could use that would be better...

  • Display an icon somewhere on the application that the user can click on to deliver an update.
  • Prompt on closing the application.
  • Just let the user manually check for updates through the Help->Check for Updates menu option.

What do you mean by "continuously delivering updates"? We only publish updates about once per month.
