I have a VS2012 WPF application that runs on my development machine, but not on the clients machine.  It publishes fine from my machine and installs on clients machine without a problem.  Under the publish tab / applications files I have all the required files set to included.
Under Prerequisites the Windows Installer 3.1 has a yellow exclamation mark so I selected Windows Installer 4.5.  Again, it works fine and installs ok on my development machine without running it in the VS2012, but cannot get the app to come up on clients.  Help please.

thanks community

You need to explain clearly what is the problem /Error on the client machine.

In the Client machine, the application installs fine and an Icon appears on the desktop.  I click the icon and a dialog box appears indicating that the app is launching.  The box disappears and my application doesn't launch.  I'm not sure where to look for errors for this WPF app.  I work perfectly on my development machine launching it outside of my visual studio environment.  Could you tell me where I could possible look to find errors on client.

thanks

The client users didn't have permissions to the database.
