ClickOnce Deployment

P: n/a
olc
We are planning to use an executable along with Bootstrapper to handle
installation checks with ClickOnce. I dont see any option to specify the
install condition for the application that is deployed, even with the
bootstrapper I can just specify the install condition for the prerequisite
bundled along with the application getting deployed. So we have decided to
make a dummy installable and attach an external executable
(InstallConditionChecker) that could do the installation check and return the
appropriate exit code so that the installation can proceed / halt.

i understand there are some samples that talks about having a seperate
executable to do the install condition checks, but I dont get exactly how the
other executable is shipped to target machine

eg dotnetchk.exe that does the prerequisite check before installation of
dotnetframework

Govardhan,
Thanks for the reply.

I want a solution based on ClickOnce deployment with autoupdate feature.

I had figured out how to invoke external exe to do prerequisite checks, but
that is a seperate exe and it has to be present in target machine before
installation. I dont know how to make that exe available at target machine
before even they install the main application.
