Game update example

A program which checks its version number with a version number online and updates himself if an update is available. This examples uses a DLL from VitalDragon (Marvin D.) The example works as follows. It first downloads a textfile from the server. From that file it reads the version number of the newest version of the game. If the version is higher then the internal version number then it will download the game/application from the URL within the downloaded textfile.
