How do I deploy shared components ?
Shared Components such as dlls, controls and resources can be installed using the merge modules (.msm) files. Using merge modules, shared components are packaged and shipped along with the application.
On the File menu, point to Add, and then choose New Project.
In the Add New Project dialog box, select Setup and Deployment Projects in the Project Type pane, and then choose Merge Module Project in the Templates pane. In the Name box, type Sample.
Click OK to close the dialog box.
In the File System Editor, select the Module Retargetable Folder. On the Action menu, point to Add and then choose Project Output.
In the Add Project Output Group dialog box, select the Primary Output of the class library (dll) project. Click OK to close the dialog box.
In the Build menu, choose Build Sample to build the merge module.
