Hello !
I was wondering if anybody has tried to use the updater to update an asp.net application. If true, can I have some clues on how to implement it ?
Is it possible to restart IIS, copy the files (permissions ?) and restart the application ? Does-it impact the currently running application ? I ask this question because I read that the updated files are copied to a temporary folder and, when validated, are then moved to the right location. Do we have the opportunity to stop IIS at this moment ?

Thanks for any answers.

Me again.
The ApplicationUpdateManager has a FilesValidated event. Anybody knows if the files has already been copied from the temporary folder to the application folder at this time ? That would answer my first question.

Sorry to ask that without testing myself but I'm just reading the documentation in order to know if I can use this app. block.

Thanks for any answers.
