Update Process

    Update Process

    I've been using Ghostdoc for a long time now, and while the product is great, the thing which still frustrates me is the update process.  Whereas most Visual Studio addins use the built-in update process, GhostDoc is still installed separately (I don't know if there is a specific reason for this).  The update process is much more complicated than it needs to be.  Once GhostDoc notifies me that there is an update, I have to:

    1. Click the button to be taken to the Submain website
    2. Enter an e-mail address
    3. Choose which version to download (though both point at the same zip file)
    4. Run the appropriate installer from the zip file
    5. Installer tells me it will uninstall the old version
    6. Installer re-launches and makes me choose all the options I've chosen for every other update so far
    All in all, it's quite a lot of clicks just to update an application - the norm these days is for something to ask "should I update?", with one or two clicks to let it do that.
