updating software exe's through updates.

Specs: Windows 7 32bit, Pentium 4/4gb
I am working as a system executive for a research company. My company has a software that's been made available to our clients to do the analysis of our research data. We are releasing daily updates for this software through a website where they can download the latest data. Once in a while we update some of the core exe's that's in the main software directory. Sometimes our clients don't get to update these exe's if they were not able to download the data on that exact day. So if a user couldn't update the latest exe's in the software they might get some error massages when running some analysis at a later date without those new exe's installed in their PC.

My question is as follows." When updating latest data on a later date if that particular user's software directory (which is normally located in the C: drive) had old exe's in it ; is there a way our data update webpage detects that older exe's and inform the users that he /she is using an older version of the software so they need to update the software?"

Have a word with the big software developers too see how they do it (Microsoft, etc).

Nothing on the webpage could detect this on it's own. Only software running on the local machine could do this.
