What exactly is InstallUtil.exe doing under the covers

I'm curious is InstallUtil.exe pretty much just putting information in the registry and or registering the .exe. I'm curious if during development I can just replace the .exe without uninstalling/installing every time. Also what about dlls referenced by the .exe. Does InstallUtil.exe register the dlls or just the .exe.  Therefore I can just recompile the .exe whenever a dll changes, then replace both the .exe and the dlls with out unistalling/installing everything
