How it works
-------------------
Application is started by clicking on an ''Application Reference'' that's like a shortcut, but the extension of this file is ''.appref-ms''

When trying to enter the path to the ''Application Reference'' in VuGen ''Program to Record'' and starting the recording, nothing happens.

Suggestions
-----------------

To record the ClickOnce applications you need to dig down into the deployment folders on the client machine and select the .exe to launch the application.

This does not do the check for updates, or run as a ClickOnce application, it just runs the application.

The folder where to search for the .exe of the application is the following:

C:Documents and Settings[USERNAME]Local SettingsApps2.0

To figure out the name of the application the Windows Task Manager can be used and do the following:

Launch the application
See which .exe is the new one that cames up Search for that file under the specified folder above.

Record with vugen by selecting that exe, using the protocol that is used for communication.
