Are you manually writing something to do these checks and potentially download?

All this is available automatically using the built in 1-Click deployment that comes with VS 2005.

I do not like ClickOnce.
I am using a Windows Installer Setup project.
I already have it working to check if an update is available.
I just don't know how to link to the .msi file programatically.
