  • Hi sreelakshmimadhu,

    They are files generated when publishing a ClickOnce application. I presume they are used by the ClickOnce deployment runtime. The files are created for each dll, and contain digitall signed information about the different assemblies and the dependencies that they have. You should not mess with these files.
