VSPackage: How to deploy to registry? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a package that was originally written in Visual Studio 2005 and migrated to Visual Studio 2008. Recently I have upgraded to Visual Studio 2010 and have been migrating the package to be buildable under Visual Studio 2010. Having used CTC files in the past, I have been forced into using VSCT files in 2010...

    We currently deploy the package files in an installer which adds the necessary registry entries (which were created using a past version of regpkg). However, I am struggling to get my "new" package to be picked up by Visual Studio if I generate a reg file (regpkg /codebase Package.dll /regfile:Package.reg) and apply it to the registry. If I register the package directly (regpkg /codebase Package.dll) then it works... but I can't see any difference in the registry entries that are created by this method.

    Can anyone shed any light on why I can't register a package to the registry? I have also tried it with a brand new package and got the same thing.

    Thanks,
    Alan
