clickonce problems

None of our clickonce applications seems to want to install.
We tried it on a Windows 2000 server shared folder, and the clickonce log
file tells us that some file is missing while it is absolutely wrong, the
file is there and is has all rights available. Copying it locally solves the

Another problem is the uninstall, one of the clickonce seems to have been
installed and I find it back in the add/remove software list, but I cannot
uninstall it. Of course I do not have the original setup anymore of that
clickonce test program. So it is stuck there and a new one refuses to
install since it is already installed. :-(

We used the clickonce from the new VS 2005 Standard en the C# express, both
of them gives these types of problems.
So far we have not managed to create one single clickonce that actually

We use all Win2K machines for the tests with all the necesary updates
Have other people have similar problems?

We tried it on a Windows 2000 server shared folder, and the clickonce log
file tells us that some file is missing while it is absolutely wrong, the
file is there and is has all rights available. Copying it locally solves the trick.

Some feed-back:
On XP it seems to work, but one of the problems I get on Win2K is this:
Below is a summary of the errors, details of these errors are listed later
in the log.
* Activation of \\Databank02\Da taFolder_C\Olaf \test\WINDOW~1. APP resulted
in exception. Following failure messages were detected:
+ Shortcuts could not be removed. Try again later.
+ The directory is not empty.
Another problem is telling me that WindowsApplicat ion1.applicatio n is not
found, while in reality it is clearly there and fully functional!

Ok I managed to destroy it on a Windows XP too.

Do this:
1. Create a Small C# program.
2. Publish it to a shared folder.
3. Go to another computer and install.
4. Change the program and publish again.
5. Go to the installed computer and call the program, see it updates without
7. Change the program and publish it again.
8. Go back to the installed computer and discover that you are in deep shit.
--> Install will fail.
--> Add/remove software will also fail, complains about a shortcut that
cannot be removed.

Now we are stuck. We cannot install, we cannot uninstall and no program to

Any feed-back would be helpfull.

While ASP.Net is migrating toward more robust presentation by using things like AJAX I am wondering if ClickOnce will errode a lot of ASP.Net presence in Corporate Applications.

Is there some downside to ClickOnce deployment that I'm now aware of? ...

Hi, I have a .NET / COM DLL. On the client the COM object is created by a application using VBScript (Windows Scripting). I try to deploy the .NET / COM DLL using ClickOnce deployment. I know that it is only possible to deploy a Windows Forms - no DLL. Well, my idea is to deploy a "dummy" Windows Forms app, that references the .NET / COM DLL. The next problem is how to register the .NET / COM DLL on the client. My next idea was to...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
