Compiling for setup

OK, sorry for the silly question but.....

I have been writing apps for a while now in VB.Net but I have always just
run them from the IDE. This time though I have written an app that I want
to install on many computers. So, I went to the program group looking for
"Package & Deployment Wizard" as in VB6 but it isn't there! So, how do I
create a setup program??

Thanks

Hello,

You need to create a new project and under the Setup and Deployment
projects, you'll find "Setup Wizard" or "Setup Project" which will help
create what your after.

Hope this helps,

You have to use Setup Project or Setup Wizard in Setup and Deployment
Project types.

Thanks,

Do I add this to my existing project or is this a NEW project? If it is a
new one, will I then have to tell it the location of the project I want to
package?

Yes, its a new project that you can add to your solution.

If you go through the wizard, it will ask you which of the other projects
contains your executables or additional files that you want to distribute.

Bob,

Have a look at these walkthroughs, they should answer all your question (in
this messages not about deployment because it is just a start).

I hope this helps?
