We are planning to use UAB to deliver updates to our web applications deployed at different customer sites. Really in a different scenario then what it was originally designed for.

Basically a Windows Service or a Stub application on the customer web server will poll to a site of our company where we will host the updates.

We are currently developing in .Net 2.0 environment. UAB is built on .Net 1.1 and I don't expect another release of UAB on .Net 2.0 as it's successor "ClickOnce" technology is already there in .Net 2.0

My question is do you guys see any issues in building UAB in .Net 2.0 as I don't like to install two version of .Net at the customer site


any pitfalls in using this technology for the intended purpose.

Any response is appreciated !!
