Im am trying to deloy an application using clickonce from visual studio 2010 on development computer to my Win2008 Server. However i am getting errors.
I first tried to use IIS, when publishing to the server IIS, it says 'web server Frontpage server extension doesnt exist'.
Upon some advise on blogs, i tried to use FTP to deploy. then it says '..could not find web server'.
Anyone with some advise on how to publish to a server using clickonce?
Kind Regards

This isn't a complete solution, but it may be a step on the way...
I would try doing a click once deployment to some non-server target first, to confirm that I've got my click once setup right. I suspect that the target being a server is not the root problem, but that your click once setup isn't quite right.
If you don't have access to a spare non-server machine, you might be able to set up a virtual machine on your dev box and use it as a test target.

You seem to be spot on, I tired to deploy the application to another machine. It gives me a similar error.
So then how do i deploy the app to somewhere other than the local host? I currently 'create a new web application' on the local IIS and publish it there. i.e http://..machinename.../WebSite/

Sadly I've never actually set up an app for Click Once, so I can't share any wisdom. Google is perhaps your friend for learning how to set it up.
We do use Click Once for the deployment of the app I work with, and we use web deployment (but it was set up before I arrived).
Here are the settings (publish tab of the project) - which perhaps will shed some light:
Publishing folder location: \\intranet01\d$\wwwroot\SomeWebSiteName\TheAppName\
Installation folder URL: http://SomeWebSiteName/
* The app is available offline as well.
Hope that helps.

Google is failing me now.. but i'll push on :) i suspect Windows server 2008 is the problem.
I will try what you have; using a shared folder for publishng and a Website as URL.
Thanks for your help.
Enjoy your day.
