URL of Latest Software Version (SP) - Auto Push

I am inquiring about having the latest version of the Service Pack pushed out automatically on the clients. I am inquring if I need administrator priviledges on the client to have them apply the service pack or will power user and user be enough. Very important as we have our clients locked down. Please advise. Thank you.

It depends on what kind of installation method you're going to use. If you use the built-in autoupdate functionality, the user will get the service pack after connecting to the server. The jar will be downloaded at user's documents and settings directory, so no admin privileges is required. If you intend to use the setup.exe method, well, probably admin privileges will be required.

Thank you...Do you have any documentation on how to set up the autoupdate with the jar files?

You can find the file after unpacking the SP executable. Winrar or Winzip can exctract the files from the SP executables.
