What is the Generic Bootstrapper?


(by Adam Braden)

Chris Smith, an SDET on the Deployment feature team, and been burrning up the blog-o-sphere with great information on the Generic Bootstrapper.  Check out his posts regarding a description of the bootstrapper, what is a homesite, how the bootstrapper resource strings are being sim-shipped allowing you to target cross language deployment scenarios, and how to check for 64bit dependencies.  Additionally he has some good information on the unique testing requirements in this area.  Overall his blog is a great resource for yet another cool new feature we are delivering for the whole VS experience – keep up the great blog Chris!
