The primary purpose of the Auto FE Updater utility is to copy the developers front end Access file (MDB, MDE, ADP, ADE, ACCDB, ACCDE, etc) from the file server to the users PC. The files get copied down only when the developer places an updated copy of the FE on the server thus reducing network load.
Alternative scenarios include

Shortcuts can have custom icons and comments for the user to see when they hover over the shortcut..
CMD/BAT files to run the Auto FE Updater utility can be created for use with Citrix or as required.
