deployment project trouble
Hi, sorry I'm brand new to this. I am adding a web deployment project to our solution for the first time. My environment is vs2003 and I have CR XIR2 but the other developers have v9 of crystal which I think came out of the box with vs2003. We are still on .Net 1.1 for the foreseeable future.
I have just added the Primary Output and Content Files to WebSetup1 and I am at the step where you exclude stdole.exe and dotnetfxdist_x86_enu.msm. The dotnet one is already exluded but is listed as dotnetfxdist_x86.msm but the stdole.dll is not in the list. Can someone tell me if this is due to my configuration? i.e. perhaps the instructions I am looking at are for .net 2.0 or vs2005?
Also, just a general question. We are in the process of upgrading the dev environment to vs2005. Will I need to repeat any of this deployment once we have moved everything over or should this just transfer to 2005?
And finally, on our Live app we just deploy dlls, no other files at all so I am just wondering if this is the best deployment strategy for me i.e. using the merge module method? It seems to be so but just wanted to ask the experts. Thanks and sorry if these are too many questions and if they are covered in another thread. I did search first and couldn't find a clear answer on this.
