Creating or Adding a Cab Project
Cab projects are used to create cabinet (.cab) files that can be used to download components to a Web browser. This option should be used when you want code to run on a client computer instead of on a server.
Note Web Setup Projects are not available in the Standard Edition of Visual Basic .NET. For more information, see Visual Basic Standard Edition Features.

To add an existing cab project to a solution
