InPlaceHostingManager.GetManifestCompleted Event


Occurs when the deployment manifest has been downloaded to the local computer.

Namespace:   System.Deployment.Application
Assembly:  System.Deployment (in System.Deployment.dll)

Public Event GetManifestCompleted As EventHandler(Of GetManifestCompletedEventArgs)

Use the Error property of GetManifestCompletedEventArgs to check whether GetManifestAsync completed successfully or returned an error. If Error is null, GetManifestAsync completed successfully, and you can call AssertApplicationRequirements.

The following code examples demonstrate how to call the GetManifestAsync method. The handler for the GetManifestCompleted event callback checks to see if the manifest download completed successfully, and if so, prompts the user with additional information about the application. If the user agrees to continue the installation, the handler calls DownloadApplicationAsync.

The following code examples assume that you have already defined and created an instance of InPlaceHostingManager named iphm.

Dim WithEvents iphm As InPlaceHostingManager = Nothing

Public Sub InstallApplication(ByVal deployManifestUriStr As String)
        Dim deploymentUri As New Uri(deployManifestUriStr)
        iphm = New InPlaceHostingManager(deploymentUri, False)
        MessageBox.Show("Created the object.")
    Catch uriEx As UriFormatException
        MessageBox.Show("Cannot install the application: " & _
                        "The deployment manifest URL supplied is not a valid URL." & _
                        "Error: " & uriEx.Message)
    Catch platformEx As PlatformNotSupportedException
        MessageBox.Show("Cannot install the application: " & _
                        "This program requires Windows XP or higher. " & _
                        "Error: " & platformEx.Message)
