When an enduser downloads the update, Where is it stored on their local machine? I see that the file downloads and runs. But what if the user wants to save it and install it later.

Currently, the Update Service does not have the option to just download the update and save it. We plan to provide this option in the next release, which will be out in the next few weeks.

For now, you could achieve this functionality by wrapping your update.exe file into another wrapper that just extracts it to a destination the user specifies.

You can do this using InstallShield Package for the web (free product from IS). You can obtain a copy of Package for the web at www.installshield.com/pftw (http://)

I think the user can save an update if it is packaged as a single executable. Did you mean that the user can choose to save the update if it is posted as an OCI setup?

If you are using the Web interface, the user can choose to download only.

If you are using the Wizard interface, you would need to follow Leykun suggestion.
