Information about the .deploy (deploy) file type

This is one of two possibilities that we have on file for the .deploy file extension, follow this link to view both possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .deploy (deploy) file type.

.deploy
Deployable .NET file. A .deploy file is a compiled .NET library or executable, which needs to be installed as part of an application. It is used by ClickOnce.

There may be many .deploy files. Typically .dll.deploy represents a deployable library whereas .exe.deploy represents a deployable executable (i.e. application). There will be one .application file which represents the application manifest, specifying what is required by the application when the application is installed.

cf .application, .appref-ms.
