If the required files will not be copied how the application willl run.
When you are using P & D wizard close all other running application even VB.
run only the wizard .

Hi

Try to locate the processes in task manager and then end that process that uses that .dll. I don't think that this it's a better idea. Please be careful enough.

When using inno setup, you should also copy all the references of your application (.dll's, .ocx's, .jpg., etc)

For example, if your file.ocx is located at win32 of windows directory, the destination directory must be also in windows (win32) directory

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. [Files]
  2. Source: "{win}\win32\file.ocx"; DestDir: "{win}\win32\"

I think you have stored / referring some files in a particular directory which is missing at the time of creating the package. Take special care to ensure the files are added to the proper directory only.

this is the inno script file of my application

Source: "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Rama Krishna\ramakrishna\Support\crviewer9.dll"; DestDir: "{app}"; Flags: ignoreversion

what does this {app} means? is it the same path of the source?

Hi

{app} means the application path.
DestDir - destination directory

Better check for the path components/references of your crviewer9.dll. The destination path should be the same as the path of your components if you install it to another PC.
