    Creating a 'partial upgrade' sis that starts the app after upgrade

    Guys,

    I want to achieve OTA upgrades of application components.

    I've checked all the pkg format options for this (FR,RI), but havent found anything. What I'm doing at the moment is :

    1. Downloading sis partial upgrade file (done).
    2. Opening the sis file (done).
    3. Exiting the application (done).
    4. Sis file runs through and upgrades (done).
    5. Restarting original application (not done).

    I just need the original app to be launched after the upgrade to complete the process.

    Can this be done, or am i approaching this in the wrong way ?

    THanks


    Paul

    Ok. Thanks. Was hoping for a less 'hacky' way of doing this, but i guess that will do the job )

    No less a hack, but I can think of a way to do it without a second executable.

    Make your executable handle a fake MIME type (something like "x-mycompany/x-myapp") and then "launch" a file you've installed in the PU with the FM command, specifying the fake type.
