I am trying to use an in process automatic update and partial update scenario. The download works fine, only those files that have changed are downloaded. The problem is, after the application closes, the ApplicationDeployProcessor tries to copy all of the files in the manifest from the temp folder to the deployment folder. Of course not all of the files listed in the manifest are available, and the task is flagged with an error. Any ideas on why this is occurring?

Anybody have a simple test app that successfully employs this scenario?

Any help would be appreciated.


Well, it appears that there is a bug in the Updater Application Block v2. "When some files were removed from the manifest, the UAB serializes the UpdaterTask with the original version of the files. This caused the ApplicationDeployProcessor to fail." - this is a quote from a blog that was discussing the migration of UAB to .NET 2.0 and this is one of the bugs that was fixed.
