Inside and Out... An attempt to understand technology better...
When you publish an application using VS 2005 Beta 1 for ClickOnce, the publish process goes just fine. However, attempts to deploy application by double-clicking the deployment manifest fail, by giving an error that talks about a missing provider information.

This happens since VS picks up the Publisher automatically from the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion registry key's RegisteredOrganization string value. If this value is empty string, VS still goes ahead with the publishing process. Thus, the error comes since a value is required for this field.

Hence, ensure that RegisteredOrganization has a value set in the registry.

Hello there Gaurav,
I was one of the attendees at Tech ED 2004 Mumbai. The sessions were good and we got a good look into what's going to come in the near future and what we ought to look out for. The only glitch (if you can call it that) were inavailability of slots for the Hands-on Lab sessions. Registrations were to be beforehand and those who registered for the Tech Ed but did not register separately for the Hands-On did not get any slots. This was rather unexpected and disappointing. But yet on the whole, the Tech-Ed experience was really cool and I really felt good attending it.
