Deployment has been a thorn in most developers' sides for a long time. ClickOnce eases deployment of Smart Client applications, and thus has been one of the most eagerly awaited new features of Windows Forms 2.0. While an experienced .NET developer can learn the basics of ClickOnce in about fifteen minutes, problems arise when you start trying to apply ClickOnce in real-world applications, which invariably are more complicated than the classroom. This is the first complete guide to real-world use of ClickOnce, and gives a perfect balance of theory and practice - explaining how and why ClickOnce works the way it does, so that readers can then know how to apply and use ClickOnce in their own particular applications. Brian Noyes has become one of the most widely recognized experts on ClickOnce over the last year through his widespread writing and speaking on the topic.
