ClickOnce Tips and Tricks Article in CoDe Magazine
In the Nov/Dec 2006 issue of the CoDe magazine, MVP Julia Lerman writes about her experience with ClickOnce and shares some tricks.
ClickOnce for the Real World, Not Hello World
After four years of trying out every iteration of Web server application deployment that Microsoft created for .NET, ClickOnce has finally allowed me to succeed in deploying one particularly complex smart client application. But I still had to tear a few more hairs out before I got it working and came to love ClickOnce. I’m writing this article to share some of the not-so-obvious ways (including a hack or two) to use ClickOnce for application deployment.
The article explains how to add additional files to your ClickOnce deployment, and how to create updates for them. She also touches topics like authentication and creating desktop shortcuts (which has to be done by the application itself on first run). She closes with some troubleshooting tips and FAQs.
