Automatically accept updates to published (ClickOnce) application

Posted on 2006-04-28

I have published my windows app to our network server.  When I make an update it prompts the user to install the lastest updates or to skip.  Is there a way to stop this message and always install automatically when changes have been made?

    I'll guess there isn't. The very notion raises some significant security issues.

    Having said that, Microsoft apps aren't always the most secure pieces of code ever written :)

    Oh well,  Just thought I would ask my boss was quite keen for as little user interaction as possible.  You know how people are, if in doubt they click no and it never gets updated!

    Thank you.
