<PackageFiles> Element (ClickOnce Bootstrapper)

The PackageFiles element contains PackageFile elements, which define the installation packages executed as a result of the Command element.


<PackageFiles
    CopyAllComponents
>
    <PackageFile 
            Name
            HomeSite
            PublicKey
    />
</PackageFiles>

The PackageFiles element has the following attribute.

Attribute Description

CopyAllComponents

Optional. If set to true, specifies that the installer will download all required and optional files, regardless of whether the optional files are needed. If false, the installer will download only required files. The default is true.

The PackageFile element is a child of the PackageFiles element. A PackageFiles element must have at least one PackageFile element.

PackageFile has the following attributes.

Attribute Description

Name

Required. The name of the package file. This is the name that the Command element will reference when it defines the conditions under which a package installs. This value is also used as a key into the Strings table to retrieve the localized name that tools such as Visual Studio will use to describe the package.

HomeSite

Optional. The location of the package on the remote server, if it is not included with the installer.

PublicKey

The encrypted public key of the package's certificate signer. Required if HomeSite is used; otherwise, optional.

Hash

Optional. An MD5 hash of the package file. This is used to verify the integrity of the file at install time. If the identical hash cannot be computed from the package file, the package will not be installed.

The following code example defines packages for the .NET Framework redistributable package and its dependencies, such as the Windows Installer.
