Integrating the Software Update Wizard - Visual Basic

First declare the exported WebUpdate function as a function prototype:

Private Declare Function WebUpdateWait Lib "wuw4.dll" (ByVal szURL As String, ByVal nTimeOut As Integer) As Long

Then call the WebUpdate() function to initiate an updates check:

PrivateSub CheckUpdates()Dim myURL AsString 
myURL= "" 

Alternatively, ensure the supplied stub file, wuwstub.exe, is located in the same folder as your application and call it as a child process using ShellExecute() or similar:

dim objShell
objShell = CreateObject("shell.application") objShell.ShellExecute "wuwstub.exe", "https:///", "", "open", 0set objShell = nothing

That's it!  You are ready to move to the next step - authoring your update script:
