Such a thing I did, sort of, before the company went VM for almost every user. This ran from an area I carved out on a local server.

My applications would be installed and updated by the same application - it was actually a launcher which, prior to launching the application, would check a script of instructions.

For simple updates, it would compare file dates - but it also allowed roll-back, adding and deleting files and folders, and even total removal of itself, all based upon a script. One of the items in the script that was updated was the script, itself, which allowed not only for updates being added for newly installed files (for example) but even recursive construction. Uploading a new script version would trigger rerunning the entire procedure (unless disabled).

In case you do build your updater, you may wish to incorporate any of the above you may not yet have considered adding (or shun them, as appropriate).

With the VM's it all went away as the keepers of the server and it's "Golden Image" became the method for updates. Very much less efficient.
