  • You could create additional configurations.  (Debug / Release)  You could have configurations for ReleaseDefaultUI and ReleaseSpecialUI

  • Hi Pawan,

    What is the type of your project to publish with clickonce? Windows desktop app? Or web app?

    I'm not sure what do you mean about UI changed, and also what do you mean about the location of the setup project?

    If you mean changing the publish location, just like:

    Please refer to this commend as below:

    msbuild /target:publish /p:Configuration=Release;PublishDir=c:\playground\

    If you mean changing the location that install your clickonce project, I'm afraid you can not change it, clickonce install location is fixed and it is:


    You can not change this location whatever method you used.
