Introducing ClickOnce: The New Web Based Application Deployment for Windows Forms and “Avalon”
Learn how you can write Windows applications that utilize the powerful features of the client, yet are as hassle-free to deploy and update as a Web-page. "Whidbey" introduces a technology called ClickOnce, which allows developers to deploy and update their applications by simply copying the files to a Web-site and doesn't require separate setup authoring. These applications are isolated from other applications, and as a result have the TCO advantages of a Web browser-based application. "Longhorn" takes your investment in ClickOnce forward and adds great additional capabilities such as background updates, full desktop shell integration, progressive rendering, and more.
