In Microsoft windows installer deployment strategy the entire application needs to be reinstall whenever an application is updated while in the case of click once deployments strategy application updates are provided automatically. Firstly only the modified portion of the application is downloaded, and then the entire application is downloaded. Lastly only the update application is reinstalled from a new side by side folder

Impact to users computer
