"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Create the click once project with the settings you require.  Then the administrator of the server installs it with the install location in a folder shared to the users who have to access the exe.

You might wish to look at this:

The admin of the server would have to install your app to the default location then one of two things.
Share that location with other users of the system.
Physically copy the exe file to a shared folder.

Note both methods have severe disadvantages.

You may wish to consider using another tool to publish the app rather than Click Once.

ps.  A general point - I wouldn't recommend having the exe on a shared folder in any case.
