setup wizard

i have made a simple visual basic program.  all it is is a simple calculator.  i have been told i need to use the setup wizard to send it to a friend.  this seems like im going overboard for such a small program... but anyway i cant figure out how to use the setup wizard at all.  i dont see a setup wizard.  i have vb6 enterprise edition.  where is the wizard located and how do i use it and is it absolutely necessary

Hi,

You don't need to use the setup wizard when you only have one executable.  If your friend is running win98, the runtimes for vb are normally installed.  Just send him the executable.

The setup wizard isn't visible by default.  You can find somewhere in the menu 'add wizard' or something like that.  It'll give you a menu where you can check 'install and deployment wizard'

Byeee...

If you're using VB5 the setup wizard should have been installed in the START menu in the same dropdown where you launch VB from the START button...


Cheers!

Hi VNfan,

 now
if you want the wizard ,

 go to >Add-Ins< menu
 choose the item >Add-In Manager...<
 now choose from the list
  >Package and Deployment Wizard<
 and now check the CheckBoxes
   >Loaded/Unloaded<
and >Load on Startup<
  now hit the >OK< button
 
Now each time you start some project,
  in the >Add-Ins< menu you'll have
the item >Package and Deployment
 Wizard...<

It is very easy to work with it!!!
BUT, remember it's very BUGGY.

So if you have problems with it,
 just go here:
 http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/downloads/vsi/default.asp

 So here you can download the
  Visual Studio Installer 1.0

 It's worth downloading, beleave me.

  Try workin with it and you'll see
  its very good.

Hi,

Then you'll have to install the vb runtimes.
