Customization of VS 2010 Shell isolated installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a product that is based on VS shell (currently on VS 2008 isolated) and are considering migration on VS 2010 Shell.

    Are there posibilities on customizing VS 2010 Shell isolated installation ? For example, could we install without components like "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Objects"  and "Microsoft SQL Server System CLR types" ?

    Are there other customization options ?

  • Hi Petar,

    The Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Isolated) installation is not customizable.  We made some progress in making it smaller and faster than 2008, but it still must be installed as a single unit.  There is also a sample on the MSDN Code Gallery that shows how to deploy Isolated Shell based applications (sample based on 2010).
