How do I create My own install programs?

 I want to make an install program for all the files required to run my visual basic 5.0 program so I can give it to other people.

Close your program.

Go to Start Programs VB5.0 then choose the Application Setup wizard.  Follow the instructions from this point.

A word of caution:  VB is not smart enough to determine what controls your application has in it.  make sure you only have checked in the references and components the ones you need for your project This will keep your file to a minimum size.

This is all you need to do.


Good luck!

I think there is a SetUp program in VB that can create an installable self extracting file. I believe it takes a whole folder and creates it into an executable selfextractable file////
