What is the app.xml file that shows up in the release folder of my app?

Visual Studio 2005

When I build my Windows app a file called myappname.xml (without the .exe) shows up and I don't know what it is.  Here are the contents of the file.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<member name="P:MyAppName.My.Resources.Resources.ResourceManager">
  Returns the cached ResourceManager instance used by this class.
</member><member name="P:MyAppName.My.Resources.Resources.Culture">
  Overrides the current thread's CurrentUICulture property for all
  resource lookups using this strongly typed resource class.
</member><member name="T:MyAppName.My.Resources.Resources">
  A strongly-typed resource class, for looking up localized strings, etc.

What is this?  Do I need to deploy it?  If I don't need it can I stop it from being created?

that file is created from the comments you enter in your source, to be used as document. if you dont want it you can stop it from creating.

open the project, in solution explorer select the project, right click from menu select properties. in the properties window, click on compile. in compile options there should be a option something like create XML document. check off this option and build.
