You can use the system property VersionNT to determine the operating system at install time. This allows you to create install conditions that allow the installation to proceed or abort based on the operating system. The VersionNT property is an integer that is calculated by the following formula: MajorVersion * 100 + MinorVersion. Thus, Microsoft Windows 2000 would report a VersionNT value of 500 or greater, based on the minor version.

Looks for a more recent version of the application on the target computer and aborts the installation if one is found. Specifies whether the package is installed for all users or for only the installing user. Specifies a command line that is executed after the build ends. Specifies a command line that is executed before the build

RunPostBuildEvent
Specifies the condition under which the post-build event runs. The value is either On Successful Build or Always. Specifies the path that is used to search for assemblies, files, or merge modules on the development computer. Holds the information used by the previous two properties to deter mine versioning.

Deployment
Configuring a Deployment Project to Deploy the .NET Framework
All applications created with Visual Studio 2005 require.NET Framework 2.0 to run. If you are uncertain of the deployment environment for your applications, you can configure your setup project to install prerequisites such as the .NET Framework as part of the installation. The .NET Framework is configured to be installed by default, but the following procedure allows you to verify that this configuration is still valid.
To configure a deployment project to deploy the .NET Framework
1. In Solution Explorer, select the deployment project. 2. From the Project menu, click Properties. The Property Pages dialog box opens. 3. In the Properties dialog box, click Prerequisites to open the Prerequisites dialog box. 4. If it is not already selected, select the check box labeled Create Setup Program To Install Prerequisite Components. 5. In the Choose Which Prerequisites To Install list, select the check box labeled .NET Framework 2.0. 6. In the group labeled Specify The Install Location For Prerequisites, select the radio button labeled Download Prerequisites From The Component Vendor s Web Site. 7. Click OK, and then click OK again in the Property Pages dialog box.
