Where is the VB.Net "Package & Deployment Wizard"?

P: n/a
In the VB6 I used the "Package & Deployment Wizard" to create an
installation package.
I didn't find the VB.Net equivalent.
Does anybody knows where or what is it?

Hi Geri,

Open Visual.Studio.Net, choose File, New, Project and you will see it at
Setup and Deployment
(Although I never know if it is in VB.net standard, if you do have that you
can check that on this page)

I hope this helps,

If you use VS.NET Professional or better, you will find some setup
project templates (just create a new project and select "Setup and
Deployment Projects", then choose "Add to solution") and a setup
wizard. If you use VB.NET Standard, you won't have a wizard, but setup
templates will be available too.

Hi Herfried,

If you are using another package from VB.net than VB.Net standard
than...............

As far there are no "better" versions than VB.Net standard.

They all make the same code and as far as it is VB need the same techniques.

With the more extended versions, you have wizards that for some people give
less work.
(Although I do not think that you use them often?)

There /are/ "better" versions. IMHO VB.NET Standard is a children's toy.

ACK. You can develop VB.NET code with VB.NET Standard.

You can connect to SQL databases. You can create setup projects. You
can create class libraries. You can...

.... but not as comfortable as in VS.NET.

less work.

I only used the setup wizard, I didn't use wizards to create code.

I use VB.NET Standard and create deployment projects that create either
..msi files or .cab files.
