Hi

I am trying to install OD inside my organisation network which uses a credential based proxy for accessing the internet and getting this error - " +The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required." . (attached the log file)
I was wondering is there any place where I can mention these credentials or some other way like an offline setup which can be installed directly etc to get around this?

Sandeep,

If you haven't already, you might want to check out this post.  My problem is specifically related to the use of a proxy script in our enterprise environment.  The bug is NIM090926.

Hi Adam,

Thanks ! I did check that post but the problem I am facing is, the OD itself is not getting installed in the first place so that afterwards I can make changes in config file to make it work.
After Clicking on the installer OneClick file- OperationalDashboard.application , it gives this error message - "Application download doesn't succeed......" .And more details gives that attached error log.

Though I am not sure but was suspecting, the installer might not be able to get internet access to download all the files required to complete the installtion.And thats why I was looking for some offline installer setup, if available.

This appears to be a well known ClickOnce issue. See this ClickOnce through Proxy with Authentication and this clickonce (in .NETv3.5) - does it support working through a proxy server with username and password?

Does your proxy use Windows authentication (NTLM) ?
If yes then can you try changing your machine.config file to include this as the last entry

<system.net>
 <defaultProxy enabled="true" useDefaultCredentials="true"/>
</system.net>


Otherwise, for Http-Authenticated proxies (Basic/Digest), there might be a workaround out there.
Take a look at this SO question How can I use my Proxy credentials when installing a Clickonce application?.
Disclaimer: Use this workaround at your own risk. This is just a link i found while browsing the net. [ATTACH=CONFIG]30151[/ATTACH]

Let me know if this helps.

Hi Anargyros ,

Thanks but unfortuantly this didn't work. We have Http-Authenticated proxies and I tried the 2nd way but the insatalltion is still failing with the same error.
