Hi Experts,

i've used the AutoUpdatorDotNet dll to auto-update my application.

I've done all things according to documentation as your site.

App Check for the Updates perfectly.
Download the Update Perfectly

But... When try to install the New Update it shows an error

"An error occured Attempting to install AutUpdate(project name)" and in Details pane... it shows "Unable to locate application file 'AutUpdate.msi"

Please help me out.

Thanks Alot

Looks like you have following type of problem. As it suggest in one of the answer use AutUpdate.msi directly. If that doesn't solve the problem give me the link with the setup file or post the screenshot of the error screen.

Look like it's not the problem with AutoUpdtaer.Net. It's the problm with your installer. Which appllication you use to build the installer?

I'm not familiar with visual studio installer. I think you should use NSIS installer. It provides more control over installation process. Here is the tutorial.
