Application deployed via ClickOnce failed to start process for external executable

I have a desktop application configured for ClickOnce deployment. The Security Settings is "Full Trust". I have a feature in application that starts new process with another executable and then loads results produced by it into a text file. The logic is following I save input data into file 'input.txt' next I create new process and start it
 using (Process process = new Process())
	            // Stop the process from opening a new window
	            process.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
	            process.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
	            process.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
	            process.StartInfo.FileName = graphvizFile;
	            process.StartInfo.Arguments = string.Format("-o \"{0}\" \"{1}\"", outputFilePath, inputFilePath);


Open in new window

This code does not work in deployed application (via build configuration "Deployment"), but works when I compile project with "Debug" or "Release" build configuration.

I have now more information - the problem is with one configuration file that does not have extension and is ignored by ClickOnce during deployment and after installation on client machine this config file is messing and executable fails when process.Start().

The problem solved by manually editing the *.csproj file to add as content file for deployment this config file (that does not have file extension)
