I have noticed that installation of my application fails in some cases. If the user has .NET Framework installed the installation works. But if it's not installed then Click Once will install it, after asking the user to accept the EULA, installation will
complete and the "Install"/"Don't install"-dialog appears. My application is downloaded and then fails with the error message:
Following errors were detected during this operation.
