Deployment packages in Visual Studio 2017


  • Are there any deployment packages that are available in VS 2017 that create .msi or .exe installations? There used to be a trial/free Flexera (InstallShield) but I can't find that on either Extensions and Updates, the Add New Projects menu option or NuGet package manager. Is there a replacement or is it assumed that a developer pick one up and install it themselves?

  • Hi friend,

    Please download it via Tools->Extensions and Updates, please refer to the following screenshot:
