Hello sorry for the delay in response.
The sequence of events that happens include:
In Solution - Double Clicking on 'Properties' (This will then load properties)
Navigate to the 'Publish' tab (this is the last tab in the properties section
Ensuring that all settings are correct and hitting the 'Publish Now' button.
This then creates the files :
Application Files (folder)
Enterprise (name of project)
Upon running setup, the installion starts and appears to install, then the error message appears
"Application cannot be started. Contact the application vendor."
And gives the details as listed below

I cant give you any more information then that apart from the computer specs, as my colleague is not in the office today i do not have access to his machine, if the problem is not visible from the error log, then i can respond with system specs to see if that is cause the problem.
Is very weird for us as i mentioned before if i do the same publishing method from his machine the installation and running of the application is fine and it starts with no problems on any machine installed.
Thanks in advance
