  • Hi divyapanicker,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    As far as I know, this is an “either – or” option for your issue. If you want to automatic update your add-in, you can install it for specific user on the computer. If you want to install for all of user you will lost automatic update feature of the ClickOnce installer.

    Have a good day,
