The company I work for uses an application that is deployed through clickonce. This means that everytime they update said program the program regenerates in a new location ie:


Recently the computers were updated to windows 7 machines and now everytime an update is pushed out the windows firewall see this as a new application and prompts the users to allow the program through the firewall. This means I have to walk around to every computer and type in admin credentials.

Does anyone know of a way to allow the application through windows firewall regardless of the path it is in? Google has not been very helpful so far.
