Web Deployment - a few questions


Hi, I have followed all the steps in the guide for application deployment. In point #10 of the steps for web deployment it states "take the resulting MSO from the deployment project and copy it to the deployment server". Is this a typo? I only see a MSI file.

In point #11, it states "run the MSI on the server while logged in as administrator". So do I just run that program from anywhere, i.e. the desktop of the server? I don't have to run it from within a particular folder?

Lastly, after creating the setup project I wanted to check it in to my solution. I get the following error message:

"The project that you are attempting to add to source control may cause other souce control users to have difficulty opening this solution or getting a newer version of it. To avoid this problem, add the project from a location below the binding root of the other source controlled projects in the solution."

Any ideas on what I can do to correct this? We have multiple projects and developers and I don't want to be the guy who broke source control. I am also wondering if I can just delete the websetup project since I now have the MSI? Do I really need to keep the project or is it okay to delete it from our solution?

Sorry for the raft of questions but as I said above, I don't want to break this for everyone else. Thanks in advance!
