Resolution
 There is no method for Unity to package the EDS or DTM files with the project.

The Unity Pro Project and Archive files can be saved and opened even if DTMs are not installed in the DTM Hardware Catalog. However, Building a complete Unity Pro project requires that all DTMs in the project be installed on that PC.

Opening the *.stu Project file and *.sta Archive files restores the DTM topology tree and device configurations. If there are DTMs in the restored project that are not installed on the host PC, there is no warning message. The services such as Rebuild all or Check devices must be used to check for un-installed DTMs.

When Saving STU and STA Files only the DTM topology tree and device configurations are saved in these files. Not the actual DTM or EDS files. If sharing these file with another user then that user must install the required DTM or EDS files on their PC.

This is also true of ZEF Files which the DTM topology tree and device configurations is saved and restored in the *.zef import/export files. Not the actual DTM or EDS files. The user must install the required DTM or EDS files on their PC.
