MT2070 Scanner - how do I create a way to update my program?

I have the MT2070 Scanner, and I have created a VB.net program on it. But since there will be many scanners used like this in the field, I can't manually update each one every time I make a change to my program. I would like to create a simple program or even a BAT file that updates my program file when the user plugs the scanner into his/her PC via USB cable. I already figured out how to use the registry to detect when the scanner is connected, I just need a way to copy my program file to the device folder I specify. Please advise.

Best option in such a case is

Best option in such a case is to use Windows Remote API.

Remote API (RAPI) (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)

Remote API 2 (RAPI2) (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)

You should be able to still find some documentation online on MSFT website and you can use this wrapper to build a small PC app to manage the sync:

Thank you for your advice.

Thank you for your advice. When I clicked on the "Remote API 2 Managed Wrapper" I saw code for an example. However, I am not familiar with C# code. I tried using Visual Studio to open the project file in the Example code, and could not. What do I use to create/edit C# code?

Please advise.
