Microsoft Clickonce: where does my application end up?

Jun 29th, 2011

Short answer:

Not here:
C:\Users\THEUSER\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\JM0GBCYM.MJT\6WDVATRE.THK\simp..tion_163ce7792035a125_0001.0000_0b7df1ad2fe4ca04\

Because that is where my latest deploy ended up and as you can see – there is one User and 3 semi randomised folders.

Long answer:

Do like this.

Deploy-install your application.

Fire up Process Explorer and look for your application.  Get properties.  Select Image.

Sysinternals' Process explorer properties image

Properties of your (mine) application

 

The highlighted textbox is where your application ends up.  It is a new location for every install so don’t bother to memorise it.

Also note the version: 1.0.0.0  Where does it come from?  The application is version 1.0.x.y and the install is version 1.0.0.9 and none of them 1.0.0.0.  Anyone knows?
