    Today I used the ClickOnce kind of installation for one of my projetcs and I
    didnt like it. It indeed created kind of a shortcut in my
    programs menu, but is not a shortcut is an "Application Reference" with no
    info on the real path for the app beeing referenced... so after a while I
    realized my app are put in a 9zyddbgetdb I dont know where my
    files ares going to be stored.
    Does anyone knows how to get the real path for an "Application Reference"?

    Hi, From what I have seen, the click once usually copies the files to the folder, <userprofile>\Apps\<framework version>\{some Guid}\

    So, for windows XP, I would suggest looking at the folder C:\Documents and Settings\{user name}\Local Settings\Apps\2.0\{GUID}.

    Hope this helps.
