Best way to create install kit for web part

  Asked By: Meredith    Date: Jun 16    Category: MOSS    Views: 938

What is the best way to create install kit for the web part in WSS 3.0 or
Portal 2007? CAB file or create install.bat? Is there any other way?
Installation kit should install dll, xml, css, xslt and gif files. Any techical
reference would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Technically a .CAB file, but Its not like the .CAB file we used in 2003.
Now you would use a Solution, which is a .CAB file with a .wsp
extension. Solutions contain a manifest that describes what needs to be
installed where and can be used to automatically install  Features,
webparts, files, Code Access Security policies, event receivers, etc. to
every web  Front end on a scheduled basis. If you are installing web
parts you can either install them directly with the solution, in which
case they go in the Server (web Application) gallery or put them in a
feature to install them to the Site Collection gallery.

Take a look at the following:
