Exercise 3: Multiple Add-in Deployments
In this exercise you will be taking two addins and deploying them using the same ClickOnce deployment. This will require manual updates to be made to the deployment manifest and consequently a manual re-signing of the manifest using mage.exe.
Task 1 – Combine both add-in files into a single folder
In this task, you will publish two separate add-ins and compile their published files into a single folder.
Task 2 – Create a single combined manifest file for the addin
In this task, you combine the contents of each add-ins manifest file into a single manifest file.
Task 3 – Re-sign the manifest files
In this task, you will re-sign the manifest files. This is necessary due to the changes made in previous tasks. If the files are not re-signed, the VSTO Runtime 2010 will treat the files as if they are corrupted.
Task 4 – Test the multi add-in deployment
In this task, you will install the single MultiAddIn ClickOnce Deployment and verify that both the WordAddIn and ExcelAddIn are installed.
