Deploying to a Network Directory or to CDs

Network and CD deployment are essentially the same deployment method from the point of view of Package and Deployment Wizard.

Using this option, you deploy to a single location instead of deploying to multiple disks as you do when deploying to disks.

To implement a network or CD deployment, you should follow the procedure in Step by Step 21.2.

STEP BY STEP
21.2 Deploying to Network or CDs

  1. Create an installation package as discussed in the first part of this chapter and make sure that you have saved the packaging script. Note that the installation package may have created a single CAB file—because for practical purposes, your distribution medium (the network or a CD) has unlimited space available.

  2. From within the project, run Package and Deployment Wizard, choosing the Deployment icon (the middle icon) on the opening screen.

  3. Choose Folder Disks as the deployment method (see Figure 21.25).

    Choosing the Folder option. You also choose this option when you deploy to CDs.

  4. On the Folder screen, choose a folder to create the deployment. Notice that a Package folder is created underneath the folder you choose (see Figure 21.26)

  5. On the Finished screen give a name to the deployment script (see Figure 21.27).
