The UAB seems to be designed to basically run as a background thread to an app, meaning it continuously polls the server for new manifest files and basically eats any exception that happens if the manifest download fails.

We would like to modify the UAB to only run during startup. What I want to do then is to change the UAB to only attempt to download a particular manifest N number of times, and if the download fails cancel the update and continue into my app.

Any ideas how I can do this?
