I'd like to be able to use the WPF Runtime (10.1.1) Deployment tool via the command line. If I run DeploymentTool.exe /? on the command line, I get the dialog in the attached image. The /c option indicates support for using a config file. I cannot find documentation on the config file format. Can someone point me in the right direction?

enter image description here

Apparently when you create a configuration in the tool, it is stored in the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESRI\ArcGIS Runtime SDK\Settings. If any additional information is stored elsewhere, I can't find it.

Mike Branscomb answered this question for me in the ArcGIS forums at ...

"Configurations are created by the Runtime Deployment Tool in C:\Users\\Documents\ArcGIS\Runtime Configurations."

I'll add that it's an XML file so the parameters are easily discoverable & interpreted.
