    How do we use it?

    First of all, we have to select the ‘Other Project Types’ option from the New Project. Then, we get some options:

    1)Setup Project: Creates a Windows Installer project to which files can be added. This project type is the most general of all.

    2)Web Setup Project: The deployment tools in Visual Studio .NET also support deployment to a Web server. Using deployment to install files on a Web server provides an advantage over simply copying files, in that deployment handles any issues with registration and configuration automatically.

    3)Merge Module Project: Most commonly, merge modules are used for files that are installed to a common location (such as the System folders) and/or shared by multiple applications. For example, many ActiveX and .NET controls that are sold by third-party tool vendors come with their own merge modules so that the developer can simply merge the installation logic of the control into their setup without worrying about having to manually specify the file’s information and setup logic.

    4)Setup Wizard: Creates a Windows Installer project with the aid of a wizard.

    5)Cab Project: The CAB project is a Setup and Deployment project, which is used to create a .cab file containing a set of files in a compressed archive. This .cab file is used to package ActiveX controls that can be downloaded from a Web server. The CAB project reduces the size of a distribution package. Using CAB project, developers can implement Authenticode signing and specify the display name, version, level of compression, and location of dependent files.

    You can have a look at the Video Tutorial @

    to see that how do we use Setup And Deployment Wizard.
