Inpersonate user

My company uses Active Directory.

If i'm making a windows application (deployment using ClickOnce), how
would I enable the application to add or remove entries to the windows
hosts file located in 'C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc' ?

Hi,

You can't really perform any custom actions in relation to deployment of a ClickOnce application.
What you can do however - is to perform some initialization routines when your ClickOnce-deployed application is first run. To check whether the application is being run for the first time, inspect the System.Deployment.Application.ApplicationDeploymen t.CurrentDeployment.IsFirstRun property.

But - be aware that if deployed to XP and in Vista in particular you would need administrator priveledges to modify anything inside the ...\Windows folder.
