ClickOnce - Cannot download... The application is missing required files. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wrote a ClickOnce deployed application about 2 years ago.  I have been maintaining it again for the last 6 months.  For development I have a development machine, a web server to revieve the publish and a client machine to download and test the app.

    This set up has work fine until today.  Very suddenly I am getting a message on my client machine when I try to install the app.  "Cannot download the application.  The application is missing required files.  Contact appliaction vendor for assistance".  This error would make sense if I had added anything, but we are supposed to go live with this release on Friday, so there is no way I would add anything this late in the game.

    My server guy assures me that nothing has changed there.

    The file that is shown in the error message is the .application file for the app.  The path the error shows is in the temp internet directory under Local Settings.  The client machine doesn't even have that directory.

    I am completly stumped and sweating the Friday deadline.  Please help!
