Check component versions & update them (was Deployment on Windows Vista)

pdfdevice and calendar can be checked using this approach of major  
and minor
it is also well documented in the examples of oWrite Plus

as for the frontbase dam, you have to instantiate an object for the  
frontbase dam,
without login you can use the .$damversion property (starting 1.7))  
which returns a 10 digit
(composed of studio version, dam version, build number)

next step is a way to update the externals (automatically or not)

However, following the new installation approach in Windows Vista
the xcomp directory is put in the Program Files, not in the user  
AppData directory
Will it ever be possible to update the externals ?
