Chapter 5. Program Excel with .NET >  Distribute .NET Components

5.6. Distribute .NET Components

Visual Studio .NET uses Setup and Deployment projects to create the installation applications you use to distribute .NET components or any other type of application. These tools are greatly improved over the Visual Basic 6.0 setup wizards and there are a number of paths you can take to create an installation program for your .NET components.


Note:

.NET Setup and Deployment projects create Windows installer files (.msi) that can be installed as standalone components or made part of a chained installation involving other applications— including installations created using the Office Custom Installation Wizard (CIW).
