We have several WPF applications that we distribute using Click-Once delivery. Fortunately this technology continues to work, mostly, as we don't want to start dealing with direct client installations. Will this technology continue to be supported with .NET 5.0?

    Click once is supported for .NET 5 and .NET Core on Windows 10 as of November of 2020. What is not supported is the ApplicationDeployment Class.

    ClickOnce was only revived when .NET 5 was released a few weeks ago, https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/announcing-net-5-0/

    There isn't much documentation beyond that announcement, and many issues were reported over several sites. If you happen to hit some issue, try to post to GitHub as that seems to be the right place at this moment, (like https://github.com/dotnet/runtime/issues/44602)
