Help with creating Installation package under VB2005 Express Ed.

Hi all,

I am currently working under Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition on
Windows XP Pro. with SP2 and .NET 2.0.
Unfortunately, Setup and Deployment projects are not included in
VB2005 Express Ed.
I wondered how can I deploy my program on those machines running
either Windows XP with SP1 and .NET 1.0 and Windows 2000 with
SP4 and .NET 1.0. How can I include required .NET 2.0 files in my
distribution? Is there any third-party installer could help on this
issue?

Many thanks,

James

Hai,
Setup and Deployment projects are included in VB2005 Professional
edition.
I am not sure if Express edition can be used to setup and deploy
projects.
From what I know it is for educational purposes only.


But, you could install .NET 2.0 directly on your target machine by
downloading it from Microsoft website.
You could directly copy the .exe file onto target machine inorder to
run it if your program is simple.

Hope it helps.

How about Standard Edition? Does it contain "Setup and Deployment
projects"?
Thanks,

James
