Download with activation pending


  • Client is interested in using Clickonce for deployment and the user population is 40K plus.


    Using Clickonce, is it possible to:


    • Download the next version in a staged manner to various user groups (this is to avoid server load)
    • Once the newer version files are downloaded, these are activated only after cetain date-time (this is to avoid the support staff managing two versions at any time)

    Hi NinadK-MSFT,

    For your first question, you can publish your ClickOnce application to several servers and let different user download and update from different server. You can even publish your ClickOnce application from a network file share or from media such as a CD-ROM.

    For your second question, you can set the application to update automatically or use the deployment API to manually update your application. For more information, please check the ClickOnce Update Strategy.

    More information about ClickOnce, please check:

    Hope this helps.
    Best regards.
