Custom build steps

I am trying to emulate the C# behaviour of copying referenced assemblies
into the build output directory but for normal DLLs. Currently some
components (DLLs) are build and dumped into a shared area with the system
path set to it so that the main application can run. This causes a number of
problems; the main one being that we want to develop / run side by side
versions of our application (branches) concurrently. So I thought that
custom steps would be the way to go with the input being the built component
dll and the output being the target directory / component name. Is this the
correct way to go or is there a better way? There is only one custom build
step for a project and I have mulitple referenced components...

Any help would be appreciated...

Regards
Lee

Hello i have made a custom control. i have placed a panel on it. I want this panel to behave just like the normal panel.

I have a deployment project that I'm setting up. I need to perform a different custom action based on whether this is a first time install or an update. Does anyone have any idea if it's possible to set the Condition property of a custom action to determine if the currently running install is upgrading a previous installation and if so how? I'm also open to other methods of acheiving this functionality.
