Default Deploying Software in VB Pro 2005?

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.

Thanks
Pete*

Take a look at the Deployment Projects that are shipped with Visual Studio.

Here a tutorial...

I am attempting to publish my first project with VB 2005 (Pro).
I don't yet understand what I am setting wrong.
I am trying to publish to a local directory on my system and then move it to the network, so the installation can be accessed by everyone else - they will be installing the application to their local system.

I keep getting a message about needing a proper URL. I really don't understand.

I'm looking at the tutorial on About.com that was referenced earlier in this topic. So far, I haven't found my answer.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Karen

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.
