How do I deploy my design time assemblies so that Visual Studio will add the controls into the toolbox.
currently we deploy our assemblies with an .exe that will create a folder "c:\HelloWorld\DotNet\API\ inside the folder you have the HelloWorld.dll and a \Design folder with HelloWorld.Design.dll the next step is to add controls in HelloWorld.dll to the toolbox,
which requires a registry entry like below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v4.0\AssemblyFoldersEx\HelloWorld API]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v4.0\AssemblyFoldersEx\HelloWorld API\Toolbox]
"TabName"="Hello World Silverlight 4"
Since NuGet deploys the assemblies into the local project each time it is installed. How can support for design assemblies and VS toolbox be implemented.
There is the versioning problem too to worry about since each time the user installs a newer version it makes a new folder
