This article and video, helps you learn how you can use the ClickOnce Visual Studio component, for deploying your .NET Windows Forms apps (WinForms apps). The video presented in this article, is part of my online course “.NET Programming for Beginners: Windows Forms (C#)“.
The Need for a Deployment Method for your .NET App
Right after you finish the development of your application software (app), you need to provide an easy way for the end-users, in order to deploy your application on their computers.
Deploying your app means, that you provide an efficient way for your end-users, to install, run and update your app on their computers.
There are various tools and methodologies, that can help you create a deployment package/process for your .NET app.
One of these tools is the ClickOnce component in Visual Studio.
Let’s learn more about it.
The ClickOnce Component in Visual Studio
The ClickOnce component in Visual Studio, helps you to easily create deployment packages, for your .NET apps created with Windows Forms (WinForms) or Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
Among other, it supports creating deployment processes for both installed & online apps, as well as, it allows you to create self-updating app deployments.
It is very easy to use the ClickOnce component in Visual Studio for your app deployment needs. You can watch the video below, in which I demonstrate, how to create a software deployment package, for a .NET Windows Forms (WinForms) app.
