Hi friends, i have created a game in vb6.0. I want to make a setup file for it running in all PCs.I have referred to about 135 files(including picture,database,sound files) in my code i.e,i use those files in run time.All those files are within a folder 'support'..I think it is required to add this folder while creating setup,but the wizard doesnt allow a folder to be added(only files can be added)-am i required to add all 135 files one by one(I tried it but the setup doesnt work)?How do i do it?

Hi vdraceil

Better use other setup utility tools. Try www.download.com for free software

Use some setup softwares like setup factorry or install shield instead of building your own.

I don't know about install shield but Setup Factory supports VB 6 and 5 codings.
Do your all coding, make exe of your game and add all your files your game need in your Setup Factory project and build the software.
I have also made my apps setup program using Setup Factory 6.

Any problem I'm here.
