    Resolved [RESOLVED] define application installation folder

    I created an application which I install at a computer at work.
    When installing the application ends up in some complicated folder under AppData\Local\.

    Is there no way to always install the application to the same folder like: C:\Windows\Program Files\My App?

    Re: define application installation folder

    If you use the Publish feature in VS then you are using ClickOnce. ClickOnce apps are installed to the ClickOnce cache. If you want to be able to control where the application is installed then don't use ClickOnce. VS supports Windows Installer Setup projects via an extension. I'm not sure whether that extension is installed by default these days but, if it's not, it's very simple to install it.
