SlowCheetah + ClickOnce Issue

If you are using SlowCheetah + ClickOnce in your project,

Demo: ConsoleApplication6.rar (4.93 MB)


Error 1 Could not copy the file “bin\Release\ConsoleApplication6.exe.config” because it was not found. ConsoleApplication6

Steps to replicate

  1. Create a console application in VS 2012
  2. Add transformation to your config. (If you already have SlowCheatah tool installed, it will automatically download the SlowCheetah package from nuget. Otherwise, please add it manually)
  3. Publish (Observe: It will work)
  4. After publishing, please try to build or publish again. (Observe: You will see the error above.)


  • Delete “app.manifest” under “Properties” in Solution Explorer.
  • If you don’t see that file, go to Properties -> Security and check/uncheck “Enable Clickonce security setting”. It will re-generate that manifest file.
  • Note: If you are a ClickOnce user, you might check this project “Shimmer (It’s like ClickOnce but Works™)” as well.
