try this -

if that extra field/textbox is not linked to database and is just being used to show some information ie calculations etc, u just can replace the exe. if there ur updation effected the db or u've made modifications in ur db then u need to change the db at the client side too. u can write a script or create a patch application that modify the db and put the appropriate data in that using existing data

all the best
