A deployment manifest is an XML file that describes the deployment settings of a Visual Studio Tools for Office solution and identifies the current application version.

Visual Studio Tools for Office uses the ClickOnce deployment manifest schema defined in the ClickOnce Deployment Manifest reference.

The deployment manifest file identifies a Visual Studio Tools for Office solution deployment using ClickOnce, including the current version and other deployment settings. It references the application manifest, which describes the current version of the solution and all of the files that are contained in the solution.

The name of a deployment manifest file must end with the .vsto extension. Although it is a standard ClickOnce deployment manifest, the extension differs to enable the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime to handle the file.

The following code example illustrates a deployment manifest for a Visual Studio Tools for Office solution.
