ClickOnce is a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or Windows Forms deployment mechanism that has been part of the .NET Framework since version 2.0. ClickOnce enables automatic deployment and update of WPF applications over the network from a deployment server.
Here are different Deployment Technologies for WPF applications
Windows and the .NET Framework include several deployment technologies, including:
- XCopy deployment.
- Windows Installer deployment.
- ClickOnce deployment.
The deployment options for a WPF application depend on the type of application. From a deployment perspective, WPF has three significant application types:
- Standalone applications.
- Markup-only XAML applications.
- XAML browser applications (XBAPs).
