Play Everything you wanted to know about VC++ deployment but were afraid to ask
After C++ code has been written, compiled and tested it's now time for figuring out how to deploy it successfully on n number of users' machines and their various configurations... This is no easy task given the number of potential versioning conflicts. Of course, there are ways to do this, many of them automatic in nature, but which way is the best way? How do the various methodologies of delploying exes and dlls on machines stack up? How does it all work? Deployment is one of those things that many of us take for granted, but George Mileka and Ben Anderson of the Visual C++ team spend much of their time thinking about the process of deploying code to any number of machines so we don't have to. Tune in and learn about the nitty gritty of VC deployment. There is plenty of whiteboarding in this one so be sure to put your propeller caps on.
