When a user opens our documentation CD, I want to that action to:

1. Invoke a check of our website for updated documentation

2. Alert the user if any updates are available.

How can that or some similar result be accomplished?

BTW, my searching for that answer in the TechWhirler archives failed, so
if you know it's there, please tell me what search string to enter. I
don't have much success using the search function.
