This is actually a possible solution. The problem would be to extract the file from the archive etc. (you cannot usually overwrite the executable that is currently running); but this way the costumer is forced to be connected to the internet etc. (in this particula case it wouldn't be a problem). Anyway my costumer might just prefer to avoid using a product that he doesn't know about *AND* that gives him unnnecessary troubles (what if RT posts the update two days later than the expiration date? what if is down?)...
