I created an application that displays a text file (RTF) for every day of the week. How can I install the 366 (and more) files in a subdirectory of the application using the VB Setup Wizard or the VB Setup Kit.
I thank you in advance.

If you are using the Package and Deployment Wizard you add the files to your setup project when the 'Included Files' Step appears.  Just click the 'Add' button and add the files.  Then when you get to the 'Install Locations' Step, select the folder you would like to install the files to.

MTroutwine,
Thank you for answering my question.
It did'nt resolve my problem because I did what you sugested already. Eventually I succeded! The problem was that I created a dependency file for my project every time I started the setup wizard and the problem disapeared when I created a setup program without it.
Thanks again
Dan
