Hey,
I needed some help setting up Visual Update Express for my installer for my application. I tried reading the page about it on the website but it did not really get me anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Zennara

Some more information would help here. How are you setting it up? Using a local web server with IIS or hosted by a third party? Either way should basically be the same. Here's how mine looks within InstallForge itself:
