Does this copy anything?

I am trying to get the "Deploy" task into my build script.

I am wondering if the Deploy task actually copies the MSI to the destination somehow, or if it just handles the killing and running of the app?

Hi Vaccano,

The Deploy task installs a MSI to one to many target machines.  It runs it from any UNC.  When a MSI is run from a remote location, it will copy itself to a local temp folder before it runs on each machine.  The other features of it supports uninstalling, stopping/starting services, and passing additional arguments to the MSI.  Take a look at the example XML in the document tab. to see the implementation.
