Opening the Deployment Editors
The deployment editors are used to configure an installer that you create with a deployment project. Each deployment project includes six editors: the File System Editor, the Registry Editor, the File Types Editor, the User Interface Editor, the Custom Actions Editor, and the Launch Conditions Editor.
Note For merge module projects the User Interface Editor is not available; for cab projects no editors are available.
When a deployment project is first added to a solution, the File System Editor is displayed.
To open a deployment editor
- Select a deployment project in Solution Explorer.
- On the View menu, point to Editor, and then click the name of the editor that you want to open.
Tip The deployment editors can also be opened from the Solution Explorer toolbar. When a deployment project is selected, a button appears on the toolbar for each available editor.
