Here’s 3 options for distributing COM components for your ClickOnce deployments within an enterprise:

-          Use Reg-Free COM to get the COM components to autoregister after ClickOnce deployment. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/05/04/RegFreeCOM/ for more details on this option. This is an awesome option, but requires a lot of testing when you get it implemented. You

-          Use the Bootstrapper to pre-deploy our prerequisites. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/04/10/Bootstrapper/ for more detail on this option.

-          Use SMS to push out the prereqs (this is the least attractive option). Also increases the TCO (total cost of ownership) of the app for the organization.

More to come on these topics. Working on some downloadable examples of the 1st two options.

Enjoy,
Murray
