When I run the P&D Wizzard it produces 4 files..a support file, cab file, exe1.file and exe file.
Seems to me a lot of the files in the cab are in the support and I have duplicates. The cab file looks like a zip file ...is it ?
If I am creating a zip file using a Zip Application, do I include all 4 files...

Juliete, it's not necessary to include the support folder in you distribution package, as you mention, all the files in the .cab file are repeated within the support, they are there only in the case you make a minor change in any file you could easily rebuild the .cab file by running the .bat file included in the support folder.

So, include all the files except the ones in the support folder.
