Clickonce Deployments?

I'm curious to see if anyone has any advice on deploying Click Once apps throughout a domain?  Our in house programmer won't give up his ability to easily update an application, however it's manual install process. 

Anyone have any suggestions for pdq deploys of Click Once?  I'm guessing Powershell or CMD is the only way to get it done, if it's possible.

  • I use Group Policy Preferences to populate the desktops of our users with shortcuts to the ClickOnce installers they need access to. I then ask our developers to configure their ClickOnce deployments to not generate a desktop icon upon installation. launching the ClickOnce installer from its source location does largely the same thing as launching the installed application. The first case installs or updates the application before opening it while the second case updates the application before opening it.
