I'm redeveloping a Windows client/server app that uses an Access database in VB.NET.  Can anyone suggest a resource that clearly explains best practices for publishing, deployment and version upgrades?  The app was previously installed via .msi, with version upgrades done via .msp.  I'm looking for a really good book that will lead us through the entire publishing, deployment and upgrade process.

Have you ever checked ClickOnce?

Is the Access database local or shared? Is there modification to do on the database as well?

I've seen references to ClickOnce.  Do you know of a good resource for learning about it?  What I saw on MSDN assumed a greater knowledge of it than I have.

The Access database is local, but can be shared among multiple PCs on the same LAN.  We've built logic into the program to avoid conflicts.
