That would work, of course. But it relies on the "web person" to check frequently.

If the server has enough disk space, and of course if the server and net connection can handle the infrequent bandwidth of downloading for the few people who will need 9.0c, then the redistributable could be on that server, and would always work - although it might not be the most current version.

I'm sure that Jim can sort out the tradeoffs.
