Application Updates


Is it possible to create a publication, whereby we can post updates to the users, in this case, instead of a whole new publicstion for download, can we setup the system to only update the required files? The publiaction consists of HTML & pdf files. i.e. say one of the pdf files have changed?

Unfortunately no, because an HTML Executable’s publication only reads data from the EXE file. So to update a publication, you have to update the EXE file. It would be better to directly replace the existing EXE file with the new one.
Or you can patch it with some differential-updates / delta patching software (thus, you only send the diff file to your customers).

For the future of HTMLEXE, we are studying a way to offer additional storage files for an EXE file. This would solve the update problem.
