Updating windows services?

Feb 7, 2011 at 11:51 AM

It would be really neat if we could use NetSparkle to update a windows service (see SO question) - I imagine the workflow would go something like:

1. User installs windows service MyAppService

2. User installs NetSparkle enabled helper application MyAppServiceHelper.exe, and sets it to launch on windows startup

3. Update is issued to MyAppService, MyAppServiceHelper pops up upgrade window, service is stopped, updated and restarted

Do you think something like this might ever be added to NetSparkle?

What would be even more kinds of awesome would be if the Helper used WCF Discovery to find instances of updateable Windows services and application on the local network.

I might have a go at this myself!
