Making the ClickOnce deployment package available for download

After you have built the ClickOnce deployment package and copied it to a folder on your IIS Server computer, you must set up a website in IIS that points to this folder.

To make the ClickOnce deployment package available for download

  1. Open IIS Manager on the server that is to host the website.

  2. Right-click the container for your default website and then click New > Virtual Directory.

  3. When the Virtual Directory Creation Wizard appears, click Next.

  4. Set the virtual directory alias to match the value of the DeploymentPath property in your GenerateClickOnce.msbuild file.

    For example, you would set the alias to Compliance if you set the DeploymentPath property to http://server2/compliance.

  5. For the website home directory, enter the path to the folder that contains the ClickOnce deployment package, and then click Next.

  6. When the wizard prompts you to set the access permissions for the virtual directory, click Next without changing the default permissions.

  7. Click Finish to close the wizard and create the virtual directory.

To configure the settings for the virtual directory

  1. Open IIS Manager on the server that is to host the website.

  2. Right-click the new virtual directory, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Directory Security tab, click Edit under Authentication and access control.

  4. Ensure that Enable anonymous access is checked.

  5. On the HTTP Headers tab, click MIME Types.

  6. In the MIME Types dialog box, register the following file extensions and their associated MIME types:

    • The file extension .Deploy and the MIME type application/octet-stream.

    • The file extension .Manifest and the MIME type text/xml.
