  • No. You have to republish the entire application. ClickOnce does do in incremental updates, although I think your dll's have to be strongly named (I've never confirmed that). So ClickOnce caches the assemblies on the client machine, and when a new version is found, it checks against the local cache, and pulls them from the local cache instead of pulling them across the network if they haven't changed.
