I just began using a Windows program called MarkdownPad which is for editing markdown files.
It is different from programs I am used to using. Instead of installing to a directory that I set, it just saves some kind of shortcut to my Start Menu but I cannot see where the files are actually being called from.
When I install it or open what looks like the installer exe file, it shows a window that says:
Verifying application requirements. This may take a few moments.
From my research it seems this is called a ClickOnce application and it seems that these files can auto update themselves from the web
When it shows that message above, does that mean it is connecting to a server somewhere? If I had no Internet connection would this program fail to work?
