Walk through

Is there any chance of a walkthrough on how to implement this tool.

I have been trying all day. I had to download the source code because it doesn't look like all the files are included in the main release zip file.

This looks really useful but your documentation is really thin. (admittedly I am not a professional).

The version 1.0.1 works.

And it is easy to make it work.

I open the SampleApp and modify the url to the server for upgrading. For example, http://localhost/update/setup.xml.

The following is my xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:sparkle="http://www.andymatuschak.org/xml-namespaces/sparkle"  xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">  
 <channel>     
  <title>Program Update</title>
  <item>           
   <title>Version 1.0.1</title>
   <enclosure
    url="http://localhost/update/Setup.msi"
    type="application/octet-stream"
    sparkle:version="1.0.1"
   />
  </item>
 </channel>
</rss>

I put the xml and setup.msi in the IIS directory 'update'. Then it works.

But the lastest version doesn't work. I guess it depends on .net 4.0. Thus, I am installing the .net 4.0 framework.
