Deployment: ClickOnce

When reading about the Skills Measured for the Exam 70-505: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development, it appeared that a relatively high percentage of the exam (15%) was dedicated to ClickOnce.

I had done a lot of reading in the past about deployment strategies for Microsoft .NET Windows Application Deployment (ClickOnce, Installer, XCOPY), but really don't have much hands-on application, so I figured I'd begin my studies here.

Found the following starting point on MSDN about Deploying .NET Framework Applications.

Notes about ClickOnce:
  • Only supported by VB.NET and C# applications, not C++.
  • Publish Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Framework (WPF, formerly Avalon when I first started working with it), and Console Applications to a Publish Location (Web Server, Network drive, FTP Server)
  • ClickOnce Applications subject to CAS, Security Zone will depend on the Publish Location.
