Click Once Dependancy File Problem

I have a click once deployment application. When I try to install I get an error message that the applications required files are missiing. How do I tell which deployment depedent files are missing?

The error message is as follows:
Cannot download the application. The application is missing required files on the server. Contact the application vendor or your system administrator for assistance.

Goto Clickonce tab on the project properties and click Prerequisites button. Check which prerequisites are ticked. Try to use the "Download prerequisites from same location as application" option which would copy the prerequisites to the clickonce deployment. If it does not help, check what DLLs are being referenced in the References tab. Confirm that those DLLs are included with the app in the clickonce through the Application Files button on the clickonce tab.
