In-Depth Information
This chapter discussed the need for deployment strategies and technologies that
reduce the total cost of ownership, and some approaches with .NET application
deployment. The bulk of the chapter focused on a walkthrough of the construc-
tion of a fairly simple MSI setup project sporting a custom installer action. Visual
Studio Installer can be leveraged to provide professional-looking installation pack-
ages that perform a lot of complex installation and registration activities behind
the scenes, enabling users with limited technical ability to install your software.
Although this chapter only covered the rudiments of Visual Studio Installer, you
should now have enough of a foundation to pursue additional information if nec-
essary on harnessing the robust functionality of MSI packages and the Windows
Installer engine.
