How can I avoid using the Package wizard for small applications...

I have written small applications that I want to distribute without the big size that accompanies a setup program. How can I know exactly which dll my executable file needs to run in any machine. I would then zip them and send them in a different file with instruction to copy these files to the windows directory before running the executable. Is there another way I could do this, and avoid the error message: "......dll cannot be located" when people try to run my executable.?

you could run the setup wizard up to the point where it generates the list of files that your program depends on. you could then zip them up...

ps. the setup wizard does compress the files that you need anyway

Is there a way I could make my dependency files less bulky. It just seems unfair to get a 4 Meg instalation setup for a simple 8k or 12k executable file.
