Default Creating setup files

I am to VB. I created setup files for my application using package and deployment wizard. We the system is installed in different computers it gives different errors. most of them are "unable to register dll files". The strange thing is nevertheless when you ignore the errors and the installation is completed, the system runs properly. How can I avoid this problem and make my setup files register all the needed dlls and avoid to prompt the error message when these files exists and no further installation are needed.

What is the OS?
I suspect that you are running into access violations, where the person doing the installation does not have the necessary permission level to modify the Registry.

You say “Different errors.” what are the others?

I would just as soon [u]not</u> get screenshots.

Can you just say what the message was (don't bother giving the error number...)?
