Video: Add-in Express deployment models – ClickOnce and ClickTwice :)

A good speech requires a good ending. The same is true for software. You invest a significant amount of time building a software solution so don't mess it up when it comes to your deployment. Add-in Express provides two methods for deploying your addins: ClickOnce and ClickTwice. This video does three things for you:

  1. Provides a short explanation of both deployment models and their benefits
  2. Provides a demo explaining how to build a ClickOnce deployment package
  3. Provides a demo explaining how to build a ClickTwice deployment package

This video gets you started. So watch it so that you know basics. Once you have those down, dig in further on your own and learn the advanced topics…like providing your own customized UI for installation…hmmmm, sounds like a great topic for video!

    I have implemented adxSmartTag project in VS2017. On right click on project I am not seeing any option to register it.

    Could you please help me to understand how to register it in VS2017?


  • Andrei Smolin (Add-in Express Team) says:

    Hello Parshuram,

    Right-click the project item in the Solution Explorer and check context menu item Add-in Express | Register. If there’s no such item, click the project item and check menu Build | Register Project. If there’s no such item, reinstall Add-in Express.

    If the issue persists, write us using the contact form at https://www.add-in-express.com/support/askus.php.
