I have just noticed with build 109 that when I deploy an application, the
.exe file on the desktop is deleted but the .pkd files are not. Earlier beta
builds I tested di not do this. If the .exe file is deleted, I think the
.pkd files should go as well.

One problem I see with this is when the app is ready to be deployed to the
end users, the only copy of the .exe is on my device. Then I have to copy
it from my device to my desktop. Sure I could generate a .cab file for
distribution but what if I have another deployment scheme. Having an option
on the project painter would be best.

We now delete the EXE file because what was left in the directory
was an EXE of unknown parentage (the last one built).
People were clicking that EXE in Windows, but if it happened to
be for the ARM, well.... you see.

We don't delete the PKDs because that would open another
can of worms (like 3rd party PKDs and keeping things separate and...)

However - for your need....
If you build for the CABs it leaves the EXEs around with slightly
changed names (e.g., myapp.exe.ARM and myapp.exe.X86)

Well, you see our bind...
