MageUI not including CompatibleFrameworks attribute

I've got a ClickOnce .NET 4 app deployed by VisualStudio 2010, via UNC Path. I open the .application file, change the startup location to use the http address, sign, and close. The app then gives this error: - Application manifest does not accept specification of .

Does anyone know how to get MageUI to include this needed element when I sign?

This is similar to: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2654320/why-does-mage-not-generate-a-compatibleframeworks-attribute 

I've tried opening MageUI from the location suggested, to no avail, and I'd really rather not have to use MSBuild. This is a simple app and I'd much prefer Visual Studio's simple built in deployment.

Also, in case anyone's wondering, I can't deploy via http through visual studio because that requires frontpage extensions to be installed, among other reasons.

I have always used the "publishing folder location" as a 'staging' area, and manually copied files via unc to the "Installation Folder"

Don't have access to VS2010 right now.
But in the publish properties.
"publishing folder location" = C:\....\ProjectName\Builds
"installation folder url" = http:\\domain\path

Then after publish i copy the files in C:\....\ProjectName\Builds to a UNC path that corresponds with http:\\domain\path

Wouldn't the .exe.manifest still point to the C:\  location for the application directory?

Sorry for delay, I am sure you found that the manifest will point to the "Installation Folder".
Best of luck, and Thanks for the vote.
