    Code:
    #pragma once
    
    
    namespace Updateit {
    
    	using namespace System;
    	using namespace System::ComponentModel;
    	using namespace System::Collections;
    	using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    	using namespace System::Data;
    	using namespace System::Drawing;
    
    	/// <summary>
    	/// Summary for Form1
    	///
    	/// WARNING: If you change the name of this class, you will need to change the
    	///          'Resource File Name' property for the managed resource compiler tool
    	///          associated with all .resx files this class depends on.  Otherwise,
    	///          the designers will not be able to interact properly with localized
    	///          resources associated with this form.
    	/// </summary>
    	public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
    	{
    	public:
    		Form1(void)
    		{
    			InitializeComponent();
    			//
    			//TODO: Add the constructor code here
    			//
    		}
    
    	protected:
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Clean up any resources being used.
    		/// </summary>
    		~Form1()
    		{
    			if (components)
    			{
    				delete components;
    			}
    		}
    	private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button1;
    	private: System::Windows::Forms::RichTextBox^  richTextBox1;
    	private: System::Windows::Forms::ProgressBar^  progressBar1;
    	protected: 
    
    	private:
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Required designer variable.
    		/// </summary>
    		System::ComponentModel::Container ^components;
    
    #pragma region Windows Form Designer generated code
    		/// <summary>
    		/// Required method for Designer support - do not modify

    		{
    			this->button1 = (gcnew System::Windows::Forms::Button());
    			this->richTextBox1 = (gcnew System::Windows::Forms::RichTextBox());
    			this->progressBar1 = (gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ProgressBar());
    			this->SuspendLayout();
    			// 
    			// button1
    			// 
    			this->button1->Location = System::Drawing::Point(12, 12);
    			this->button1->Name = L"button1";
    			this->button1->Size = System::Drawing::Size(51, 29);
    			this->button1->TabIndex = 0;
    			this->button1->Text = L"Update";
    			this->button1->UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
    			this->button1->Click += gcnew System::EventHandler(this, &Form1::button1_Click);
    			//

    			this->richTextBox1->Size = System::Drawing::Size(290, 37);
    			this->richTextBox1->TabIndex = 1;
    			this->richTextBox1->Text = L"Welcome, we will now begin updating your software please wait. Click update to ge" 
    				L"t started.";
    			//

    			this->AutoScaleMode = System::Windows::Forms::AutoScaleMode::Font;
    			this->ClientSize = System::Drawing::Size(729, 269);
    			this->Controls->Add(this->progressBar1);
    			this->Controls->Add(this->richTextBox1);
    			this->Controls->Add(this->button1);
    			this->Name = L"Form1";
    			this->Text = L"Form1";
    			this->Load += gcnew System::EventHandler(this, &Form1::Form1_Load);
    			this->ResumeLayout(false);
    
    		}
    #pragma endregion
    	private: System::Void Form1_Load(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {

    You'll need to open a socket connection to your server. Either have your server host them through a web server or you'll need to write a listener program to run on your server.

    The .NET framework has Socket classes that are fairly easy to use. You'll need to look into using that.

    Perhaps using Google to find some tutorials on using .net sockets in C++?

    Well how are you hosting the files on your server? Like through a web server?

    Well then the first step would be to have your program create a client socket on port 80 to your server.

    Here is a tutorial on using sockets: http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/C-Sha...in-C-Part-I/1/

    It is C# but the classes you need to use and such are the same, the code syntax is just different.
