Overview : Running the application

Running the application

Once WebClient and the application are installed, the end user starts the application in one of the following ways:
*Going to the application deployer's Web site and clicking on a button.
*Clicking on a shortcut that was set up by the installation procedure and that resides on the desktop or in a program folder.
*Going to a Web browser and entering the URL of a bootstrap file on the application deployer's server.
Each time the end user starts the application, WebClient on the end user's machine compares the local version of the application to the latest version on the application deployer's Web site. If the versions differ, WebClient on the end user's machine updates the local version to match the latest version.
