Install without VS.NET present

I'm trying to install DocProject on my build server (Team Build). But I can't use the installer since it needs a version of visual studio installed?!

Any hints?

Hi Erik,

I'm finally starting to use TFS now at the office, so I'm going to start examining ways to make DocProject work better with Team Build and with continuous integration in general.

For now, though, DocProject requires Visual Studio to be installed.  (This isn't uncommon for VS extensions, in my experience - not the greatest excuse, I know :)

You can read more about DocProject's source code and the installer here:

Feel free to rebuild the source code and remove the VS dependencies if you'd like.  Of course, I can't say whether it'll work at the moment.  Perhaps with 1.12.0 I can create a separate download for a server installer version of DocProject - I'll look into it.
