Deployment is the process by which you distribute a finished application or component to be installed on other computers. Deployment is a multi-stage process that starts when an application is created on a developer's computer and ends when it is installed and ready to run on a user's computer.

Visual Studio provides two different technologies for deploying Windows applications: ClickOnce deployment or Windows Installer deployment.

For a detailed comparison of ClickOnce and Windows Installer deployment, see Choosing a Deployment Strategy.

This section discusses how to ensure that a native Visual C++ application runs on any computer that provides a supported target platform, which files you need to include in your installation package, and what are the recommended ways to redistribute the Visual C++ components on which your application depends.

The following topics discuss deployment of Visual C++ applications in more detail.
