Package a WSP

Right click your project in the right column. Then click "Publish".

A dialog will open, where you will get to choose where to place the resulting .wsp file. After clicking "Publish" your project will be build and then packaged in the selected location.

Make sure to have the Solution configuration set to Release when building for production.

Install the resulting WSP

  1. Copy the .wsp to the server
  2. Open an elevated SharePoint Management shell
  3. Run Add-SPSolution -literalpath "C:\Linktowsp\wspname.wsp"
  4. Run Install-SPSolution -identity "wspname.wsp" (here you might need to add -gacdeployment and -webapplication (or -allwebapplications) parameters depending on the content of your solution)

    That property has no effect on packaging a .wsp (you should not update it to reflect your production, just keep it pointing at you dev) May 5, 2015 at 9:31
