What popular applications that use ClickOnce as a depoyment solution? [closed]

QUESTION :

What are some examples of popular or mainstream applications that use ClickOnce as their deployment solution? (Go ahead and use your own definition of popular.)

MetroTwit, a fairly popular Twitter client, comes to mind, but I’m looking for some more examples.

ANSWER :

I believe the Microsoft Visual Basic Express Editions use Clickonce for installation (or at least deployment/download, the installers themselves are still hideously complicated). They use something called the Microsoft Web Platform Installer which some sites indicate is a part of the ClickOnce family.
