How to specify Microsoft shared Folder

Hi All,

when I was scanning the VS2008 project for dependencies, it spotted a few libraries that IS2009 could not find, for example

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\PublicAssemblies\EnvDTE.dll

where should I place this file in the Destination Computer folders?

I can see only CommonFilesFolder. Should I create the same subdirs (Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\PublicAssemblies) manually?

Thanks

Re: How to specify Microsoft shared Folder

Are you sure you should be distributing this file directly, as opposed to finding a merge module or other redistributable which will install this for you?

Re: How to specify Microsoft shared Folder

I just cannot see any redistributables in th list containing EnvDTE.dll.

I run IS dependency scanner and it could not spot it even in dynamic mode. Next, I have build an installation setup with VS2008. It worked perfectly and listed all the dependencies (a few that IS was missing). I also tried opening the VS project directly from IS, but it messed up everything with VS project dependencies.

Now the problem is that I don't know how to include these DLLs properly into GAC or MS public assemblies. Temporarily, I placed these into the main installation folder, but it is not a very good idea.
