ClickOnce does not support mandatory user profiles

When attempting to install a ClickOnce application when using mandatory user profiles, you may receive an error message similar to the following:


  • The manifest may not be valid or the file could not be opened

  • Manifest XML signature is not valid

  • The profile for the user is a temporary profile


Please rate and validate this problem at the MSDN Microsoft Product Feedback Center so Microsoft responds with a solution or workaround.

  1. I am also running into this problem. I will validate it at the feedback center.

    Please post any further developments and I will do the same.

    Thank you.

  2. The feedback center says this issue was resolved on 4/19/2007. However, I just confirmed that this problem also exists in Visual Basic 2008 Express Beta 2.

    George, do you understand why the feedback center lists this as resolved?

    Thank you.
