I have created a console application in vb.net 2005 on my laptop (Windows XP).  I publish it in vb.net, copy it to a cd and the install it on our application server.  During the install and error pops up "Error signature"  and the details show system.argumentexception.

   I can run the install on my laptop and it works fine. On the server it fails.

   I would greatly appreciate your help.

It appears there is a compatibilty issue depending on OS.  The machine I am trying to install my published App on is Server 2003.  .NET Framework 2.0 is on that system.  

    I have installed it with no problem and 2 Windows XP computers.  One did not have .NET Framework 2.0 and the install program automatically fetched it fromth Network and then did the install.

   I have  published and installed a small Windows App (Vb.NEt) on the Server 2003 and it runs fine.   The other application I created is a Console Application. It fails on install with the error mentioned above.  There appears to be an inconsistency based upon each program and the OS it is installed on.  Both programs install on Windows XP with no problem.

    I have checked the import references and they are correct.

  I found the problem.  this is the first time I have used the publisher and I found the debugger and located the error.  It was the SQL connection  string on the server. On my local machine I had a different Connection string.   The debugger help me pin down the problem.

     You have helped  me a few times before and I am sure you would have resolved this quickly.

      Thank you for the Screen shot info too.... I will use this  a lot..


      I am awarding you the points ... especially since no one else responded....

     Thank you... have a great day!
