Creating or Adding a Cab Project

Cab projects are used to create cabinet (.cab) files that can be used to download components to a Web browser. This option should be used when you want code to run on a client computer instead of on a server.

Note   Web Setup Projects are not available in the Standard Edition of Visual Basic .NET. For more information, see Visual Basic Standard Edition Features.

To create a new Cab project

  1. On the File menu, point to Add Project, and then click New Project.
  2. In the resulting Add New Project dialog box, select the Setup and Deployment Projects folder.
  3. Choose Cab Project.

To add an existing cab project to a solution

  1. On the File menu, point to Add Project, and then click Existing Project.
  2. In the resulting Add Existing Project dialog box, browse to the location of the Cab project and click Open.
