Weird VS2005 Error

I'm posting this in case others hit the same issue.

When trying to doa ClickOnce deployment, we hit the following error:

"Cannot publish because a project failed to build."
"SignTool reported an error. "The parameter is incorrect."

We switched from VB to C# and it worked fine. I'll leave this blog posting out on the net so it can help someone else out doing ClickOnce deployments.

To fix this problem, open the project's properties from the Project menu and select the 'Signing' tab. Check the 'Sign the ClickOnce manifest' checkbox and either create a test certificate (with password), or select an already created certificate (*.pfx) file.

This problem could occur if you're moving projects from one computer to another, in which case VS2005 cannot locate your (*.pfx) file because of the other computer's different drive name(s) (pathname(s)).
