.Net ClickOnce apps do not work after restore

Recommended Posts

Hi All...


We have found that all of our ClickOnce applications do not function at all after doing a Retrospect restore. We have also seen this problem after a machine has blue screened, or is otherwise not shut down correctly. The following procedure corrects the issue:


1. On the client having the issue, enable viewing of hidden files.


2. Browse to the following directory:


c:\documents and settings\\local settings\apps


3. Delete the contents of the apps folder.


4. Relaunch the .Net app.


The rest of the process should be normal: the app will re-install itself, and run normally.


The thread that put us onto this is here:
