Installation and Deployment

To install the application, run the MSI file both on the build machine and on the desktop having team explorer, through which you configure your build definition.
This will place custom build process template in the program files folder. You can then checkin that template along with build process templates and use/customize it as required. To automatically provision this template, you can as well use Team explorer addin which can be invoked by right click on a project node in the team explorer.

After MSI installation on local desktop (having team explorer), you should be able to see context Menu item named "Provison Templates" in the project item.
