My assumption is that your website contains
1. an html entry page with a table of updated content
2. this entry page is sufficient alert to the presence of updated
material so that a specific "prompt" (requirement 2) is unnecessary.

In that case, any of a number of autolaunch utilities available
commercially should help you to autorun the entry page. You may want to
investigate I have never used the tool so I can't
comment personally on its features. My reference to it is purely
informational with no product affiliation.

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?
