How tell ClickOnce we moved and renamed our app?

As, let's say, "Acme" company we published a C# Win app named "MyApp" using
ClickOnce.

But now our company name has changed and even the app name has as well.

How can we update things correctly in ClickOnce so that our current users
will not have to manually uninstall the current app and install the new one?

Thanks,

Ronald,

I would think that you would have to have them do that, since in
essence, it is a different app.

Granted, if your app already checks for updates, then all you should
have to do is publish a new version of your app.

However, I would think that if the app name has changed, or the URL that
the binaries are downloaded from, then you would have no choice but to have
them uninstall the old app and install the new one.

Hope this helps.
