View Full Version : using js to check software version

01-31-2008, 06:23 PM
The company i work for has a software which we update constantly.

We have to send out updates to all out clients on a regular basis and it is very tedious.

Is it possible to create a version checker through javascript to check for the softwares version?


1. Our programmers release a new version (version 1.1)
2. Client with verision 1.0 goes to our website and clicks update button
3. javascript checks version info and then informs client whether to update or not.

basically like how you go to microsofts website for system updates.

Notes: our client software is client side, so the script would be server side.

Not with javascript, as far as I know.
