Deploying a Custom Event Handler Has Never Been Easier!

Last week I announced the release of a new solution starter on CodePlex: Persist SQL Server Analysis Services Roles settings Solution Starter on CodePlex, one of the great hidden treasure of that code sample is an automatic installer that deploys the custom event handler created. Mike Shughrue and Steven Haden have written this piece of code. I encourage to reuse it in all your custom Project Server Events to ease the deployment (there is also this great tool to manage events once they are deployed).

The installation performs the following steps (configuration screen below):

  1. The event handler DLL is installed into the Global Assembly Cache.
  2. It registers the event handlers in the Project Server server-side events for the PWA URL specified
  3. It updates the events service configuration file with parameters required by the event handler
