<Solution SolutionId="4AFC1350-F354-4439-B941-51377E845F2B" 
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
  <FeatureManifests>
    <FeatureManifest Location="Calls\feature.xml"/>
    <FeatureManifest Location="ServiceRequest\feature.xml"/>
    <FeatureManifest Location="Customers\feature.xml"/>
    <FeatureManifest Location="HelpDeskCore\feature.xml"/>
  </FeatureManifests>
  <TemplateFiles>
    <TemplateFile Location="Mobile\HelpDeskHomePage.ascx"/>
    <TemplateFile Location="1033\xml\webtemphd.xml"/>
    <TemplateFile Location="SiteTemplates\HelpDesk\onet.xml"/>
    <TemplateFile Location="SiteTemplates\HelpDesk\default.aspx"/>
  </TemplateFiles>
  <Assemblies>
    <Assembly DeploymentTarget="GlobalAssemblyCache"
      Location="HelpDeskCoreFeatureReceiver.dll"/>
    <Assembly DeploymentTarget="WebApplication"
      Location="ServiceRequestValidation.dll"/>
