Package and unpackage using management tool

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I started my new job two weeks ago. The previous developer left. It's hard to get info.

The software has a website and management tool, and using all kinds of window services.
When we need to make an implementation for a new customer, we just make a plugin and add the plugin dll to management tool. Package the dll.

When we deployt the software to customer we install the web site, management tool and services to client's server. These are core parts of the software. And we unpackage the plugin package file in management tool on client's machine. Then I see we can update the db on client's sql server.

What I don't understand is howcome we can update the db and create tables sometimes when unpackage the dll package. I pulled the plugin project from VSS and created in my local machine. I didn't see any obvious query statements in plugin code. I totally lost.

Anybody has related experience and has any ideas? Very appreciated!!!
