I'm curious how people manage software updates when installs are local? If you are the developer of a software where many users have local copies, and you want to publish a new version, what methods do you use to force users (or at-least notify them) that a new version is available?

I've had pretty good luck building application into NI Package Manager packages (NIPM). This makes it easy to update applications by opening NIPM.
There is also a NIPM API, so you can use LabVIEW to check for updates. If there is an update, I prompt the user to open NIPM and update.

You could look at existing deployment tools to manage software installed on multiple computers:
I believe it can do both, force the update, or notify users.
