Well, there are many ways it can be done.

A few possible ways could be:

Program reads a .txt file from a webserver which contains the version and a download url for the new one,

Program connects to a server, sends a version check message, the server sends the new version back and download url

Program has set dates of release for the update, so it won't trigger until the computers clock is at the date or later.

Internet server ways are usually best to do.

A simple way to do it is to first have a constant written in your code to define the version number. Say $version = 1.0.1.

Now you have your exe look at the server where you keep updates and use FileGetVersion to check the version. When you compile, use the Resource Hack to set your version information.
