How not to build with “ClickOnce” deployment option?

“ClickOnce” deployment is cleaner and easier option than “InstallShield” option. Also, it is free.
However, there is one glitch. ( MS people will call it a “feature”. )
“ClickOnce” doesn’t allow execution level higher than “AsInvoker”. So, it means that you can’t include a call to some functionality which requires “Administrator” privilege.
What? Isn’t it totally different thing to elevate execution level when launching, and building/deploying an executable? Right. However, it’s the approach MS people chose, and when building a project, it will warn and stop building.
In my code ( I got rid of “s” here, because my native English speakers said it was wrong if you wrote/speak codes. Well, a language keeps changing. According to English grammar book, you should not say, “Give me (a) milk”. A correct one will be “Give me a cup of blah blah”. But one very surprising thing I found in living here is that there has been virtually no person who ordered like “give me one cup of Cafe Mocha”, “Give me one glass of Coke” etc. They always say “Two Cokes”, etc ) I call WMI method to enable/disable network interface. It requires “Administrator” privilege.

So, I had to change a deployment method not to use ClickOnce.

However, how not to use ClickOnce? Isn’t it enough not to click “Publish” menu item?
Visual Studio still spit out the error message.

How to solve it is to turn off “Security Option” like shown below.

The following is when the option is on.
