Learnings Today #2009.01.25 – Adding a file to the “Content files from…” list in a VS2005 Installer project
Adding files to the "Content Files" an Installer project under VS2005
is a tricky business!
The control for adding the files aren't in the installation project, but in the actual VS2005 project where the file is present.
Under the file properties (F4 on the file name), make sure to set the "Build Action" property value to "content".
This action automatically adds the file to the "Content files from..." list in the Installer project.
Think Microsoft for addressing Usability! Whew!
