making Intellisense work

I'm a tech writer, not a developer, so please walk me through this.

I'm using the Intellisense component and generating HxS successfully from code that has been compiled with XML Documentation enabled. I've also created an MSI to integrate the help into VS 2008.

After I run the MSI on my machine, I get Intellisense help in VS 2008. (That is, I see our <summary> content as the second line of a context-sensitive pop-up). But when the developers run the same MSI,, they don't see the Intellisense help (they don't get the second line).

As far as I can tell, the Intellisense component of SHFB generates an extra XML file in the same output directory as the HxS, and we are supposed to do something with this file, but I don't know what.

Sorry to be so stunned, but can you help us get this going?

I think it's sufficient to deploy the intellisense xml into the same folder as the assemblies, that way VS should pick them up automagically.
