Issues with the ClickOnce deployment

The ClickOnce deployment allows us to deploy automatic updates for the rule manager, unfortunately we have also receive many issues with the ClickOnce process. Typical reported issues:
Here are some suggestions from Microsoft:

ClickOnce and Web Browser Compatibility

Currently, ClickOnce installations will launch only if the URL to the deployment manifest is opened using Internet Explorer. Make sure that Internet Explorer is set as your default Web browser.

Note1:

Mozilla Firefox is supported if the deployment provider is not blank or the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant extension is installed. This extension is packaged with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

Note2:

Internet Explorer contains a setting called Automatic prompting for file downloads, which affects this behavior. This setting is available on the Security Tab in its Options menu that affects this behavior. It is called Automatic prompting for file downloads, and it is listed underneath the Downloads category. The property is set to Enable by default for intranet Web pages, and to Disable by default for Internet Web pages. When this setting is set to Disable, any attempt to activate a ClickOnce application programmatically (for example, by assigning its URL to the document.location property) will be blocked. Under this circumstance, users can launch applications only through a user-initiated download, for example, by clicking a hyperlink set to the application's URL.

You can try the direct ClickOnce URL link at http://www.acumenbusiness.com/_downloads/publish.htm after the 'Acumen Business Components' are installed.
