How to Deploy VB.NET Application on Windows 10?
Posted on 2016-08-02
I am developing a VB.Net application that I publish and then install on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 machines without any issues. I am using Visual Studio 2013 Update 5. The application will eventually be running on Windows 10 Tablet PC's in the field. I have my first Windows 10 Tablet PC (Dell Rugged 12 Tablet) and have run the Setup Program from the Publish directory. The program runs, but then I can find no trace of it to add a short cut to it. The only way I can find to run the program again is to run the Setup Program again or to click on the One-Click application in the Publish Folder.
What am I missing? Is there a different way to deploy applications on Windows 10 machines? I have not used had to use an Install Shield to deploy my applications to Windows 7 or 8.1 PC's. when I run Setup I can not find a trace of the program in the Start Menu, All Programs or any of the Program Files folders.
