setup project Deploy

JJ
Hi,

I have gone the setup project route and added the setup project to my
solution as in the guide. I have checked the dependancy's and they all seem
to be there. Now do I just build the project then move the project files to
CD or am I missing a step? Do I have to be in release mode for my App in
order to do the setup build? How can I check to make sure Framework 1.1 was
installed as well?
Thanks,

JJ

Yes, you should be able to take the build output from the setup project and put that onto a CD.

By default, the setup project is not built as part of solution build. You can use the Configuration Manager to change that.
The Setup project will build in either the Debug or Release configuration, however.

The setup project is not capable of installing the .Net Framework at install time. You can add a launch condition which
will fail the install if the target machine does not have the .NET framework on it. This launch condition will provide a link
for the user to install the Framework. If you want an integrated setup which will "bootstrap" the framework and launch
your application, you can download an update to Visual Studio that will enable you to build this:
