    I want my application to be able to check on the server the latest app version and the latest database version. Since this occurs at launch (or early after), it must be quick and transparent.

    I plan on using GetAsyncString to get it from a text file, but if there is an even faster way, I'd love to know it!

    Probably not faster, but how about using an .ini file with db2000 's dll?

    It must be online. I need to get a string online and compare it with an offline one. The offline one is a variable taken from the already existing preferences file (a text file loaded as a CSV with "=" as the separator, brilliant!)
