My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.
We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.
Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?
The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

I am a 'newbie' to VWD and I am slowly working through the Basic Walkthrough Help files, and learning plenty along the way.
However, when I tried to create a new database in the LINQ control walkthrough I found that the option to create a new database is missing, and further investigation has found that many other new item templates are missing.
I am using a brand new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate and have enabled IIS and .NET from Control Panel-Programs-Turn Windows Features On-Off. I used the WPI to install all basic elements eg. IIS Components, SQL Server Express.
The only 'new item templates' I have when I right-click the App_Data Folder and choose 'new item' are:-
ADO.NET Data Service
AJAX Enabled WCF Service
Dynamic Data Field
SQL Server Database
Does anyone know where I have gone wrong.

Is it possible to Print Screen and then immediately Paste into a .NET app and upload to a server? I'd like to skip the step of the user having to first paste the screen into an image program and save as a jpg, gif, etc. Thanks!
Hi Everyone, I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!
I am trying to get the screenHeight and width:
// Get MobileCapabilities from current Request.Browser
MobileCapabilities currentCapabilities = (MobileCapabilities)Request.Browser;
// get a property of the browser
Response.Write(currentCapabilities.ScreenPixelsHeight + " <br>");
Response.Write(currentCapabilities.ScreenPixelsWidth + " <br>");
but this is always show that the Height is 480 & the width is 640
I am trying on HTC with Opera Mobile 9.5
This article describes methods for designing screens in a user interface and the technology frameworks that support screen design.
