Operating system Windows XP sp 2, Windows 2000, Windows Vista.
.Net framework 2.0
I am writing the installation of an application.
It consists of 4 parts which can have different versions,
part 1: ver 4.2 and part 2: ver 5.1 and part 3: 6.2 and so on.
Each part has its own MSI installation.
We have written a .Net exe-file which handles the setup.
The problem is that when the exe is on a
network share, the .Net application throws a Security Exception.
Deployment will be done in approximately 500 different places so configuring
the .Net Framework security individually with caspol from the commandline is not possible.
My best solution is to make the .Net application a Click-Once deployed app
with full trust. I think that the user experience using Click-Once is lacking,
when I have tried it is slow.
The question is:
Is ClickOnce the best approach, am I missing something, has anyone solved this?
