Application Setup Wizard

During the application setup I chose to distribute on floppy disk (1.44). The wizard created five .CAB files on my hard drive, a Setup.exe, Setup.lst, and then a directory called Support, containing about 15mb of additional files.

I copied the cab files to a floppy each, and the setup.exe, but didn't know what to do with the additional files. Whilst running setup, it then started asking for disk0 - ???, and none of the cab files were acceptable.

How do I get the system to just create the standard 1,2,3,4,5 disk setup file as in previous versions on VB. I'm currently running on VB6.

You need to copy the setup.lst to disk 1 to get your existing disks to work.

To go to disks...
After you have packaged the setup...
Click the deploy button....
Select the package you just created...
Select Floppy Disks...
Select the drive to copy to
And just keep the disks coming as prompted
