The deploy assembly functionality of BizTalk NoS Ultimate add-in helps to deploy a BizTalk Assembly directly from the "bin" directory in Visual Studio environment. All you have to do is to navigate to the folder that contains the project's DLL file that has to be deployed (usually this is located in \bin\debug in Visual Studio) and trigger the "Deploy Assembly" feature. This is very similar to the Add/Update resource functionality in BizTalk server administration console. With this feature, you can easily deploy the assembly right from Visual Studio that makes the entire process faster than the native method.
Deploying the Assembly
Follow the steps as shown below to deploy an assembly using BizTalk NoS Ultimate add-in:

- Select a project from the list. Right click the project name and select "Deploy Assembly" under "BizTalk NoS"
- You will notice a command prompt firing up automatically with the status of deploying the assembly. Once the process is complete, you will be prompted with a message as "Press any key to continue ..." in the command prompt.
