Editors Used in Deployment
Deployment projects in Visual Studio provide a great deal of flexibility in determining where and how a solution will be deployed. In the process of deploying a solution, you might want to specify where files should be installed on a target computer, specify what registry keys should be added, or set special conditions or requirements for installation. You might also want to customize the user interface that is shown during installation, or run code to perform custom actions on a target computer.
The deployment editors are used to specify and customize settings and properties for all aspects of deployment. Most deployment projects contain six editors, which are described in the following topics.
The User Interface Editor is not available for merge module projects, and none of the editors are available for Cab projects.
