How to: Specify the Remote Path for Primary Project Output
You can set the Remote Directory for the deployment of your project using the property pages of the device project. The Remote Directory specifies the device directory where the application's output is deployed.
The Remote Directory is set to %CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES%\<projectname>, by default. The first part is a CSIDL value and the second is your project name. CSIDL values provide a system-independent way to identify Remote Directory folders. These values supersede the use of environment variables for this purpose. The following table lists valid CSIDL values for the Remote Directory parameter. Use % signs to encapsulate the value.
