Update of Fix
The CodePlex team has fixed the following issue. The download should work fine for IE now. In case that the Sample Browser ClickOnce Installation is not automatically started because of adblocker, you will see the following message in the webpage:
"Click here if your browser does not start the download automatically."
And you can click "here" to start the installation manually.
This week, you may experience an installation issue when you install the Sample Browser hosted in CodePlex using IE.
Steps to repro: 1. open http://1code.codeplex.com/ in IE 2. Click Downloads 3. Click “ClickOnce Installer” 4. Observe count down (3. 2. 1.) 5. Nothing happens.
This is a known issue in CodePlex, and the CodePlex team is trying to fix it this week. The current workaround is to use FireFox or Chrome to install the Sample Browser.
I will keep you updated about the progress of the issue.
