Using ClickOnce to deploy the Compliance Accelerator client

ClickOnce is a deployment technology that Microsoft has developed for the .NET Framework. It is designed to deploy applications from the web, keep them up to date, and minimize the effect that those applications have on your users' computers.

In outline, the procedure for using ClickOnce to deploy the Compliance Accelerator client is as follows:

  • Obtain a code-signing certificate with which to sign the ClickOnce package.

  • Obtain the SHA-1 thumbprint of the code-signing certificate.

  • Edit the supplied MSBuild file to suit your environment, and then build the final deployment package.

  • Copy the deployment package to your IIS Server computer.

  • Set up a website from which users can run the installation.

The following sections describe these steps in more detail.


The Compliance Accelerator release media include a ready-made ClickOnce package with which you can review the contents of a deployment package without needing to obtain a certificate, edit the MSBuild file, or build the final package. However, this sample package is not intended for use in production environments.
