In this example we are using the module ThingsForSale that was created in the tutorial from Step 2.

From the menu for the module definition for ThingsForSale, select Create Module Package.
Enter a name that ends with .zip and click the Create link.
The Private Assembly will be created.
You can retrieve the .zip file from the "...\Install\Module" directory of the portal.

At this point the file can be used to install the module.
