Click once not updating

Our systems must always be online and we must provide after hours support.This week, one of our developers deployed an update to his end users.I don't want to get into all the benefits as I have discussed some in a previous post.To summarize my scenario, I do software development for a 24 x 7 x 365 manufacturing plant.

Why does this scenario magically work in Edge Spartan but not Firefox or Chrome?They must run the application from the install folder to get the newest update.This option works for a single client and is a temporary solution, what if a permanant rolback is required?Squirrel works and does exactly what we require, our windows forms application’s can have a ‘check for updates’ option, which updates to the latest release, close the old application down after its updated, re-open from the original desktop or start menu shortcut and your done.As a standard, we use Click Once to deploy all of our applications.
