I started using ClickOnce in my project last month.. I used the dynamic updates from code..
#1. No way to get the list of latest modules..
I was tying to implement the Firefox-Plugin auto-update style in my application.. I wanted to show the list of updated modules that suppose to be downloaded. Unfortunately, there is no way to get the list of updated modules through code....
#2. The version of the whole application need to be updated if we wanna update just one module
It's really suck about ClickOnce... If we wanna update just one module, we will need to change the version of application (e.g. "shell.application" ) and the version of manifest (shell.manifest)... i dont really like that thing..
#3. ClickOnce doesn't care about the version of assemblies.
I don't understand why ClickOnce doesn't care about the version of assemblies. What it cares about the version of *.application, the verison of manifest and the file hash of each assemblies... I dont think that it's is very good idea...
#4. DownloadFileGroup ("") works only if "optional" is checked. There is no way to download the group of file by force
Why "optional" need to be checked in order to make DownloadFileGroup work..... What I wanna do is that I wanna the application ( all file groups) to be downloaded at the first time.. later, I wanna download a particular group of files by force.. if I can download the group of file by force, I don't need to change the version of the whole file for updating new module..
I have a mind to create a plug-in based application. This type of architecture seems appropriate to my current project as it would make the application extensible so that new functionality can be added simply by distributing new plug-ins.
One question that keeps popping to the front of my mind, however, is how to enable inter-communication between various seperate, but related, plug-ins (for instance, Customer information might be useful to more than one plug-in). Has anyone got any links to any resources that describe known (and presumably successful / recommended) methods for achieving such a thing?
Me: Can you see the "up" arrow?
Me: Can you see an arrow that points upwards?
User: Oh yes, I see it now!

I'm looking at creating a CSV (or, in general, delimited) file compare tool. Using an everyday diff tool is OK, but I would like to get results in terms of columns, i.e. I want to highlight columns added or delete, and just make the user experience a little better for the testers for a mammoth test project I'm embarking on. Where can I find out more about compare algorithms?
