Hi Experts
I have been working on this app for a while now, using the Publish option within VB 2005 to create the setup files and until now this has worked perfectly.
Environment is VB 2005, SQL 2005, Vista and I repeat until this morning, everything was great.
When I now compile (publish) my setup files creates an error:
Application Validation did not succeed. Unable to continue

I am pasting this from the details provided in the error message which is:

      Below is a summary of the errors, details of these errors are listed later in the log.

Something must have changed.  I'm not sure if this will help, but have you tried this:
IN VS2005 in your soultion explorer window
1> click "Properties" a new window will open
2>  click signing on the left tab row
3> then place a check in the box that says "click once manifest"
4>  then click the "create test certificate button"
5>  then rebuild your project
6> then publish it.
