The Last Word

This chapter gave a quick tour of the ClickOnce deployment model, which was introduced in .NET 2.0 and remains a good choice for deploying stand-alone WPF applications. As with XBAPs, ClickOnce entails certain compromises—for example, you need to accept compromises about certain client configuration details you can't control. You also need to resign yourself to the fact that ClickOnce won't truly be a preferred way to deploy applications until it becomes more established, which means computers need to be running Windows Vista or the .NET 2.0 Framework. However, it's likely that ClickOnce will be a key deployment technology in the future and will continue to gain importance.
