Ouch...I just looked it up....too pricy for my one or two little useless programs...
On the Pkg & Del of Vb I include a uninstall and it only gives me a .doc file with information..I have to uninstall via windows add/remove...is there a way to include an install app with the package?
10 Points for a reply that tells me how to do it....0 for a no it can't be done!

Too pricy for a lot of people!!!

It is always included!

>and it only gives me a .doc file with information..
Isn't it giving you a .log file?

>I have to uninstall via windows add/remove...
This is the normal procedure.

>is there a way to include an install app with the package?
Do you mean an UNinstall app? If so, NO.

No is not work..it's 2 letters.

Your answer, though it doesn't tell me how it can be done, {since it can't}, is more than NO: it has an explantion of the (why & why not) of the matter...and that is work.

Thanks,
Wayne
