Very helpful addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,

Thank you for providing this great add on.

99% of the time just running the app is needed so if the confirmation dialogue could be suppressed that would be really helpful.

Thanks

Please remove 'confirm' dialog box? Or make it open source so I can remove it? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi Rushyo

I use this extension dozens of times each day and it's annoying to have to click the confirmation box every time.

I understand that you don't want to bother with a configuration window and preferences - but could you just remove the dialog box altogether? And have it automatically just install (and run) the app? That would make it even *more* streamlined! :-)

I'm pretty sure 99.999% of the time, the users just want to run the app. They never want to download and save the application file.

Otherwise - is this an open source app? Or would you be prepared to release it as open source? And would you mind me forking it and creating a new version?

Thanks,
Brendan.

Does exactly as described. thanks Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes, there is a minor inconvenience that once you click to open the app, the dialogue then prompts you to install (even if you already have the app installed), but really, if it gets you away from IE, its a win.

People who write reviews and give low star ratings - when they don't have a clue what is required bug me - this would be a 4.5 star review if possible, but because of the idiot reviewer who gave 1 I've rolled it up to 5.

How to detect he plugin has already been installed? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a nice replacement to deprecated FFClickonce, but we couldn't find a way to detect it's already installed, any clue?
Thanks for your great add-on!

No Rated 1 out of 5 stars

it does not work !

by clicking on 'Install' it just downloads the file
by clicking on launch it also downloads *.application file.

So it's nowhere close how it works with IE

What's the issue?

What issue are you actually having? As far as I can tell, you're the only person having any issues. Cheers, Danny.

EDIT: Based on your edit, at a guess, it sounds like the server you're downloading from is misconfigured. Whilst IE can presumably guess it is a manifest even without the server telling it this add-on will only work if the server reports the .application file is actually a ClickOnce manifest (as it's supposed to work). Do you get this behaviour with all sites? What version of IE are you testing against? What OS? Email me at opensource a@t rushyo.com with the details. Thanks!

It just works indeed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works, and now I don't have to use IE for clickonce installations, it's really what I wanted.

I would like to have auto launching, but it's good enough even now.

Works nice, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It'd be nice an option to automatically open the .NET app, without having tot click the new button. Is it possible?

I'm sure it's possible, I'm just not sure whether it's necessary. Unless a bunch of people have a strong use case I'd like to avoid anything 'automatic' because then I need to add preferences and, doh, it's no longer micro and streamlined :)

I can't set any of its features up (in theory I don't know what FxClickOnce actually does).
There is no "Options" window.

Since then, I can't see what's the advantage of this add-on against the ugly Microsoft version of .NET Framework assistant.

Sorry, but... I'll stick with old FFClickOnce (forcing compatibility with Add-On Compatibility Reporter).

There is no 'options' window because it doesn't have any. When you access a ClickOnce manifest, it gives you an option to ClickOnce Install. That's all it does - as per the description.
