VCWebDeploymentTool Object

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The VCWebDeploymentTool object provides programmatic access to the Web deployment tool. This tool is used to install files produced by your project so that they are served by Internet Information Services. Enabling Web deployment frees you from having to create virtual directories, configure application mappings, and copy content during development of your applications.
