 Hi, I was wondering is there a way to deploy my software in visual basic Pro 2005 so that when it is installed on the users computer it can be installed in x:\Program Files\ directory. At the moment windows installs it somewhere and I can't find out where. The end user does not get a box asking where they want to install the application. The setup program just installs it.

Another thing I want to know is how can I get all the files into 1 setup file. Either Setup.exe or Setup.msi. When I publish the software the publish folder has 4 files and a folder with other files in it.


Look into your setup project settings/properties... ther you will see a option of cabinating all the files in one .msi, but not .exe (they can be achieves only by self extractors packages, where you put all file in one .exe and run it, so it will extract all set up files into one temp dir and runs the setup file which you mention in before packing it.

With Regards,
