Visual Studio Installer vs regsvr32.exe in deployment
Posted on 2006-04-26
If I want to compare these two method of deployment, can anyone give me a detailed one? I concern about the registry , such as size and ease of uninstall. Also I want to know which one is good for frequent deployment. Since my company did the deployment more than 4 times a week. So if it always take too long to deploy, it may not good.
NOTE: It is not a single project deployment, but with more than 50 projects . what we are doing right now is using a batch file to register (regsvr32) each project's dll in silent mode. It is neat enough, but we concern the registry size and consider the VS installer may be kind of a modern style or trend.
