Setup Project - Contents Of A Folder

P: n/a
All,

I have a setup (deployment) project in my solution that installs my
application. I also have help files outside of my solution that I
want to include into my setup project. All of the help files are
located on another folder on my system.

I've added a new folder in my setup called Help, which will be created
under my installation folder. Can I have the setup gather all of the
files from the folder containing my help files rather than
specifically selecting each file? Another department is maintaining
the help so I would like for the setup to simply get all files from a
folder.

Thanks in advance!

If you are using the ClickOnce deployment, then no. You have to specify the
files to be included in the deployment.

I'm not using ClickOnce deployment. I'm using the 'standard' Setup
Project found in VS 2005. Can I do this in this type of project?

I would think so, but I haven't mucked around with that, so I don't know how
you would do that. Hopefully someone else will help you.
