ClickOnce Client Application Deployment Improvements

.NET 3.5 SP1 includes several improvements for ClickOnce deployment of both Windows Forms and WPF applications. Some of these improvements include:

  • Support for the .NET Framework Client Profile Preview (all ClickOnce features are supported with it)
  • ClickOnce applications can now be programmatically installed through a ‘Setup.exe’ while displaying a customized, branded install UX
  • ClickOnce improvements for generating MSI + ClickOnce application packages
  • ClickOnce error dialog boxes now support links to application specific support sites on the Web
  • ClickOnce now has design-time support for setting up file associations
  • ClickOnce application publishers can now decide to opt out of signing and hashing the ClickOnce manifests as they see appropriate for their scenarios.
  • Enterprises can now choose to run only Clickonce Applications Authenticode signed by "Known Publishers" and block anything else from running
  • FireFox browser extension to support Clickonce installations using FireFox browsers
