NuGet version

An application auto-update framework for .NET


Contributions are more than welcome.

How to contribute:

  1. Create an issue explaining the problem you solved
  2. Create a pull request that links to this issue
  3. Follow the coding standard

Coding standard

  1. Use tabs for indentation
  2. Always end the document with a new line
  3. Avoid commiting lines that are irrelevant for the change (e.g. random white space changes)

An .editorconfig file is available in the project, which makes it easy to follow the coding standard by installing the EditorConfig and Format document on Save extensions in Visual Studio.

How to pack NuGet

NAppUpdate is published in a NuGet package containing libraries for two target frameworks, .NET 3.5 and 4.0.

Build the following projects under configurations Release 3.5 and Release 4.0:

  1. NAppUpdate.Updater
  2. NAppUpdate.Framework

NOTE: It's important to rebuild the Updater for each configuration before building the Framework, so that the correct .NET framework version is referenced by the embedded executable.

Run the following command in the NAppUpdate.Framework directory:

nuget pack .\NAppUpdate.Framework.csproj -Prop Configuration="Release 3.5"

NOTE: It doesn't matter if you specify "Release 3.5" or "Release 4.0" when creating the package. A warning will be generated saying that the package already contains the file, this is expected.
