I'm wondering if there is easy and elegant solution to deploy
artifacts on each successful build? I did some reading before posting this question. If you are talking about deploying
.net web application the life is easy. http://www.hanselman.com/blog/WebDeploymentMadeAwesomeIfYoureUsingXCopyYoureDoingItWrong.aspx
but (un)fortunatelly I'm talking about native code which should be deployed
on IIS as ISAP extention, IIS modules and bunch of windows services. the only thing I found is this discussion http://devnet.jetbrains.net/message/5233556#5233556
which suggests to use MSI. it is a solution, but it means I have to create installer project for each build configuration which would create an overhead and honestly I'm not into this installers stuff.
Yes, I guess I can write some powershell script which will stop IIS on target machine, copy DLLs, alter XML configuration file and restart the IIS but I'm not sure this is the only and the most convenient way to do it in TC. Maybe some use of Microsoft Deployment
Toolkit will to it the right way?
So... any ideas?
