Ok, so I've figured out the connection string encrypting. I can encrypt it and it encrypts the .config file in the bin directory and not the one in the project solution, which makes sense. Now, I go to publish it though with click-once and I
end up getting two versions of the file in ...\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\... directory. One is encrypted and the other is not. This is unacceptable becuase it leaves the connection string in plain text on the user's computer.
Is there a way around this or some other method of instlling the program that it will also receive automatic updates and not have the unencrypted version floating around with plain text connection strings?
