Check the Click Once deployment. It is designed specially for that.

We publish the window base application using ClickOnce Deployment but we found following problems.
1. Application installed but error occured when it run.
2. During Installation process the window of installation confirmation display "Unknown Publisher". We have already added our company name in "Publish Options"
3. How to sign "ClickOnce Menifest"? I can't found any certificate using "Select from Store".


Our Project Property Settings:
1. Signing:
      - Sign the ClickOnce Menifest is checked.
      - Sign the assembly is checked
      - we have not choosen any strong name key file.

2. Security:
      - We have checked "Enable ClickOnce Security Setting" and selected full trust option.

3. Publish:
      - We have specified the publishing Location, Installation URL.
      - We have selected "The application is available offline as well"
      - Publish version is also specified and checked the "Automatically increament the revision with each publish.
      - We have included all files as "Include" status.
      - Prerequisites: .net fromwork 2.0 and windows installer 3.1
      - Updates: Selected the "Before application start option". and the specify minimum version is unchecked. Update location is also specified.
      - Options:
            - We have specified publisher name, product name, support url and "publish.htm" as web deployment page.
            - we have not used ".deploy" file extension
