To support the Installer, a custom XML schema should be included as part of the assembly. The schema file (XSD) file must be included as a resource in the assembly.

The custom XML schema name must use the following naming convention:
  1. <InstallerClassName>_XmlSchema.xsd

In the case of the RDP sample, the Installer implementation is called RdpInstaller, therefore the XML schema file for that technology is called RdpInstaller_XmlSchema.xsd.

As part of the resource documentation, a localizable title and description the technology should be created.

The Title and Desciption should use the following naming conventions:
  1. <DeploymentTechnologyClassName>_Title

  2. <DeploymentTechnologyClassName>_Description

To define a custom schema file

  1. Create the custom schema file.

    The following example from the RDP sample project demonstrates how to define a custom schema file.

      Copy Code
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <xs:schema id="RdpInstaller" version="1" elementFormDefault="qualified" targetNamespace="" xmlns="" xmlns:xs="">
      <xs:complexType name="RdpInstaller">
    	<xs:complexContent mixed="false">
    	<xs:extension base="Installer">
    		<xs:element name="InstallFolder" type="string256" />
    		<xs:element name="Filename" type="string256" />
    		<xs:element name="ConstructRdpOnClient" type="xs:byte" />
    		<xs:element name="FullAddress" type="string256" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="RemoteApplication" type="string256" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="FullScreen" type="xs:byte" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="DesktopWidth" type="int" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="DesktopHeight" type="int" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="AudioMode" type="string64" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="RemoteServerName" type="string64" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="RemoteServerPort" type="string64" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="KeyboardMode" type="int" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="RedirectPrinters" type="xs:byte" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="RedirectSmartCards" type="xs:byte" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="Username" type="string64" minOccurs="0" />
    		<xs:element name="ContentFilename" type="string256" minOccurs="0" />
