I hate asking this since it has been working fine until now and now I do not know why.

I have developed a number of C# Winform Click Once apps over the last few years using Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and now 2013. I publish them to a server from where the app is installed on the user's workstation.

When I installed the first app 5 years ago I noticed it installed in the

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\OrganizationName\ folder.

Subsequent apps I developed installed on workstations in this folder. This is nice because all of our internal apps are now in the same folder/Start menu item on the user's computer.

Recently, I was given a VB Winform Click Once App source code to review and deploy. I did this but the app installs in its folder and not under the \OrganizationName folder. The user Start menu now has a separate item for this app.

I cannot figure out how I got my previous apps to install in a common folder and everything I Google says Click Once deployment doesn't allow for this. I have checked all my code and compared the C# apps to the VB app to find where I might have set this but no luck.

What am I missing or have forgotten that I did?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Have you checked it with different versions of visual studio, As per my knowledge.that newer version of visual studio always install it as seperate from all,

Yes, I looked at the versions, VS2013 and VS2008. The C# apps were all developed using VS2008. The VB app was developed with VS2010 but I prepared it for our use with VS2013. I cannot find where I would have set the install folder in either version.

Thanx for your comment.
