Hi Folks,

I am using VB.net 2005 and I have developed a windows forms app.

Now I want to be able to redistribute my app. As I could see in
prerequisites It is possible only fill out the url
to download the framework and I want to put it inside of the installer
package because some clients of mine will not have internet access.

any idea ?

Daniel

If I remember correctly, there is an option to download the prerequisite from
the installation source. I thought that option did what you are trying to
accomplish. I don't have access to full VS, so I cannot verify it here.

How are you distributing? If you are doing it with ClickOnce (the Publish
option in VS), you can include the redistributable with your stuff. There's
a checkbox on the Prerequisites screen that says "Download prerequisites
from the same location as my application". Note that it's all-or-nothing -
all prerequisites have to be included.

Some installer may require if you put full .NET framework setup file
as prerequiste. A lot of third party applications allow you to put
your own extra files to be installed during software installation,
thus also the framework can be installed at the same time.

Maybe the most basic way is to force user to read README
file(autorun?) and requesting framework installation :-)
