VSTO deployment?

Hi,

I have an issue with VSTO deployment. Instead of using ClickOnce deployment,

I create the installer from the traditional windows installer. I had issues

to add the setup project under the same Solution because the configuration

of my registry always got changed from "app.manifest|vstolocal" to

"app.manifest". Therefore I did some research on Google and someone said it

was a known VS2008 bug. They suggested creating a setup project outside the

existing VSTO solution and then add files and assemblies one by one.

That solution works and it correctly installed the VSTO addin. However, as

soon as I opened up Outlook, I got an exception saying that "the

app.manifest may not be valid or the file could not be opened."

Does anyone know what might be wrong?

Thanks in advance

Since this is a specific VSTO deployment issue and not an Outlook issue I'd

suggest posting in the VSTO forum on MSDN, where members of the VSTO team

hang out and answer questions. They'd have a far better idea of what's going

on than anyone here.
