Deploying vb .net windows production version app while development version still being tested by users
Posted on 2009-07-06
I am using ClickOnce Deployment with automatic updates before the application starts for a vb .net windows app. My problem is that I need to temporarily leave the test version of the app on all the machines on which I'm installing the production version. The development app is intalled from the development server and the production app is being installed from the production server, so I can't just make the production app the next revision #. I tried to rename the app but there were so many components to rename that the whole app was out of sync. Can I just override the installation path or are there internal registries that will step on each other? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
