program updated often and want to tell users the newest ver.

Specs: Windows 7, 4 gb
How do i make a batch file display the newest version of my program? The program saves the current version in a text file and displays it on startup of the program. I want to know if there is a way that if i update it that i can make it tell the user through the batch file that the software is outdated so they can update it. The program is updated through svn.

Why use a batch file. Every Windows programming language have seen has the facility to record, disply and automatically update the version number. It is stored within the programme, no need to put it into a separate text file.

All; you need to do it is write a short routine that checks the version running and compares it with the latest version and then prompts for an update if required ech time the programme is run. You must have seen commercial programmes do it, it is a simple thing to do.

Perhaps the issue is those that already have the original, without the system(since it was distributed without) that checks for an update?
