ClickOnce installation from CD without need for update webserver?

Hi!

I would like to create a ClickOnce installation on a CD that my users can install but I´m not certain that my users has an working network connection, how can I set this up? Also the application installed needs to check for updates if the network connection is available after installation from the CD.

Hmmm, I didn't think that ClickOnce could be deployed that way, but I never tried--sounds interesting.  In order for this to work, ClickOnce deployment would need to write directly to the CD, and I am not sure how that would be possible.

Well ; )  I deploy to the filesystem and then burn with Nero to a CD

No that didn't work. As I would like to have an automatically updating application I must enable 'automatic updating' in ClickOnce but when I do that the installation burned to CD must have a Internet-connection and that's where it all fails!
What can I do??

I don't believe that there is anything that you can do.  ClickOnce was not designed to deploy in the manner that you are describing.

It works just fine if you deploy to the filesystem and burn to a CD.

You should make sure that you configure the application to check for updates "After the application starts".
