How to: Create or Add Deployment Projects
Deployment projects allow you to specify where and how your solution will be deployed both during and after development. A solution can contain multiple deployment projects and deployment projects can be configuration-dependent.
The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see.

In the resulting Add New Project dialog box, in the Project Types pane, open the Other Project Types node and select Setup and Deployment Projects.

To add an existing deployment project to a solution
On the File menu, point to Add, then click Existing Project.
In the resulting Add Existing Project dialog box, browse to the location of the deployment project and click Open.
