  • Hi RabbitZXP,
    First, you should add a folder into the directory of project and right click the folder -> select "add" -> "existing .." to add your files.
    Then right click your project->Properties, enter the "Application Files" page from the publish panel.

    Check the "Show all files"box and change the value of your files's hash to include.

    Finally publish it.

    Best Regards,
