Am i missing something?
InstallShield Installer (Basic MSI) projects have an option for using Flexnet connect to manage automatic updates. Fantastic, i can have it do updates etc and maintain an installation to the latest version.

How do i then do the same for the Suite "Application"?

Surely, having installed V1.0 of the suite that installs V1.0 of my app, if i then update the app to V1.1, the suite installer has no concept of this and would still be referencing V1.0.

Should there not be a facility to have an equivalent to fnc for suites?

Can you just configure your FNC update to download an updated suite installation instead of the .msi installation? You are correct that updating the .msi without updating the suite can break the connection, leaving the suite unaware of the updated packages on the machine.
