How to: Specify a Support URL

Updated: July 2008

When publishing a ClickOnce application, the Support URL property identifies a Web page or file share where users can go to get information about the application. This property is optional; if provided, the URL will be displayed in the application's entry Add or Remove Programs dialog box.

The Support URL property can be set on the Publish page of the Project Designer.

To specify a support URL

  1. With a project selected in Solution Explorer, on the Project menu, click Properties.

  2. Click the Publish tab.

  3. Click the Options button to open the Publish Options dialog box.

  4. If you are using Visual Studio 2008 SP1, click Description.

  5. In the Support URL field, enter a fully qualified path to a Web site, Web page, or UNC share.
