Deployinator release notes


  • When target information is not available:

    • no longer pops a dialog and instead shows those details optionally via an expander.

    • shows a button that can be used to try again.

  • Added File Properties button for project output and destination file.


  • Added scroll viewer for when window is too small.

  • When the ability to add multiple destinations was added (v1.18), lost updating of controls in response to changes in the path. Fixed.

  • When automatic deployment is disabled, the message is now only logged once per build--not once each project per build.


  • Fixed a bug where removing a destination with the button would never be committed.


  • Added support for multiple destinations.

  • Added button to open the target folder in Explorer and select the destination file.

  • Added button to open the output folder in Explorer and select the built file.

  • Made the back up feature optional though it is highly recommended to leave on so that files that are in-use can continue to be replaced.

  • Made the automatic folder creation feature optional.

  • Fixed issue with watermarks.


  • History lists now sorted.

  • Diagnostic window has copy to clipboard context menu.

  • Added button to open the destination path in Explorer.


  • A new nuget dependency in a dependent project had to be added to the main package explicitly in order to support editing C++ project settings.


  • Fixed background colors for menus in dark theme.

  • Added project configuration button with two options:

    1. Ability to set debug settings executable. (for .NET Framework and C++ only)

    2. Ability to set remote exe and working dir (for .NET Framework and C++ only)


  • Now does path validation in background as it can be time consuming especially when account information is specified.

  • Now shows whether Deployinator was able to resolve the path by setting the destination path text color.


  • Added the ability to choose from previously entered accounts.

  • Added the ability to remove bad entries from history lists.


  • Deploy dependent files now includes exes.

  • Added option to deploy satellite assemblies.

  • Added option to deploy other output folder contents.


  • Bug fix: Machines and folders drop downs were some times operating on different projects. As usually, performant code was not worth the effort (and error)--went back to a simple list built dynamically.


  • Bug fix: Fixed new roots not showing up in every project and Apply to All not being at the end of the roots list.


  • Now upgrades settings from prior version when devenv.exe (Visual Studio IDE) changes version.

- Fixed duplicates issue and added "apply to all" for machine root.

- Diagnostics and Performance collections now refreshed only when expanded or in the expanded state.
