For: No-touch/Click-once deployment

This .NET feature combines the performance of local installation with the convenience of running from the server. The application is made available on a web server or file server; the user clicks a link to run it. The application is copied transparently to an assembly cache and executes from there. It is not downloaded again unless it has been updated. It can also be run offline if this kind of operation is specified. More details here:

[msdn.microsoft.com]

Comments: Click-once is not so very different from Java Web Start, so not an unique .NET feature. Another point is that some apps may require more complex installation procedures, which need Windows installer or other setup applications. By the way, No-touch is in .NET 1.0 and 1.1, while Click-once is an enhanced version in .NET 2.0. Potentially it combines some of the advantages of web apps (always up-to-date, no installation) with those of windows apps (rich user interface, executes locally). Obviously you still need to have the .NET runtime deployed, and this is Windows-only technology.

Have you had an opportunity to try out ClickOnce yet? We have an old, but incredibly useful, VB6 forms-based application at work which needs to be rolled out globally, and one of the (other) managers is pushing for it to be redeveloped as a Web app. I think this would take far too long, and that we could realise the main advantage of a web-based interface - low deployment cost - by waiting until we can redevelop it as a ClickOnce app. Although I'd like to hear of anyone who has any real experience of this technology before I endorse it.

I am also interested on deploying this technology in my company and would appreciate some practical experience from anyone who has experience of this technology.
Thanks,

Hi Devis

It is true that Click once technology is Purely supported by .Net2.0.So if u will think to deploy Your Vb 6.0 by this it seems impossible. Ye, there is a way, u can rewrite your Present Code to vb.net 2005 and deploy the application to by this new feature. It is working fine for my Product as I deployed by this Technology.

Yeah, I'm looking for some pro's/con's for ClickOnce. My company is looking into wether we should use it or not. Anyone have some cons? I have found plenty of Pros but I would like to know is there's anything I should know that we might not like.
