How to: Add Assemblies in the File System Editor

Assemblies can be added to a deployment project from the File System Editor or directly from Solution Explorer.

NoteNote:

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 Visual Studio Settings.

To add an assembly from the File System Editor

  1. Select a target folder in the File System Editor.

  2. On the Action menu, point to Add, and then click Assembly.

    NoteNote:

    The Component command is also available from the Project menu: point to Add, and then click Assembly. Choosing this command from the Project menu rather than the Action menu causes the assembly to be placed in the Application Folder rather than in the target folder you have selected.

  3. In the resulting Component Selector dialog box, browse to the assembly you want to add and select it.

To add an assembly from Solution Explorer

  1. Select a deployment project in Solution Explorer.

  2. On the Project menu, point to Add, and then click Assembly.

  3. In the resulting Component Selector dialog box, browse to the assembly you want to add and select it.

    NoteNote:

    Assemblies added from Solution Explorer are always placed in the Application Folder in the File System Editor. If you want to place assemblies in a different folder, you must add them from the File System Editor as described above.
