Clickonce app hosted on non-ms platform RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Can ClickOnce apps be hosted on non-ms platform? I read that UNC share can be a publish location, but would there be file system or os limitations? For example, can AIX work?

    Thanks.

  • As long as it can access it as an UNC share it should be irrelevant what OS the host actually is.

  • Whatever server you are serving the files up on just needs to support the MIME types required by Microsoft.

    For example, lots of people host  their C/O apps on Apache servers.

  • Hi petarch,

    For more information about ClickOnce with OS, maybe Robin's this blog would give you more information : http://robindotnet.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/mime-types-for-clickonce-deployment/

    When you are hosting a ClickOnce deployment on a webserver, you need have certain MIME types defined so the server knows how to handle the files. You can host a ClickOnce deployment on any server regardless of the operating system. So you can host a ClickOnce deployment on an Apache server just as easily as a server running Microsoft Windows Server. You just need to set up the right MIME types.
