I want to mention a few things before I conclude this article. You can add as many Setup and Deployment projects in one solution as you want. Each of them can have different settings and options.
I hope that this introduction to deployment has shown you how easy and powerful deployment in Visual Basic .NET is. By adding a few bits and pieces to our project, we saved ourselves from writing code to install our application -- not to mention uninstalling the same application.
In the next article we will discover some more powerful features in deployment projects, such as adding launch conditions, adding registry entries, prompting users for inputs and much more, so stay tuned!
