Ok all...

When deploying a clickonce app using vs2008 over the .net 3.5 framework, I have added the following xml to the app manifest

(??? are used as representations, not the actual letters I use)

<fileAssociation xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:clickonce.v1"
   extension = ".???"
   description = "??? Document"
   progid = "???.Document"
   defaultIcon="???.ico"
/>

as described in the MSDN.

When I attempt to deploy the app on a test machine the following error occurs during install:

"Cannot Continue, the Application is Improperly Formatted.  Contact the application vendor for assistance."

reading through the details in the log we find:
File associations are not allowed in deployment manifest.


I should add that this is a full trust application, and we are currently using a test certificate.

According to MSDN this should be working.  Any idea why it is not?

Sounds like you added this info to the deployment manifest and not the app.manifest

Ok...I'm assuming that I'll find the deployment manifest in the application folder...

I started there, but went on to the actual MSDN page
