I created one Application in Visual Basic, which consists of 4 VBP files,
1      StandardEXE file say (file1.vbp) and
3      ActiveXEXE files (file2.vbp, file3.vbp and file4.vbp)

The Link between these files are as follows

File1.vbp refers to file2.vbp (both Client Side Files)
File2.vbp(Client Side File) refers to File3.vbp (Server Side File)
File3.vbp referes to File4.vbp (both Server Side Files)

Now I want to create setup files for the client Side Files and Server Side Files, How can I create it.

Where shall I refer to the .VBR files of the Server Files
Should I refer them.

Normally, you compile the setup for File4.vbp, and generate also the dependency file.
Then, you continue with File3.vbp, which should take into account the dependency file of File4.vbp, which should add all the dll, ocx and exe necessary.
You continue this way until you built all the dependency files and setups.

hi,
Create Standard exe of file1 by make exe..menu option
Create Activex exe before that in the project properties
Component tab check remote server file.next time u compile Actvx exe
usr VBR files also will be created.
Now run package deployment wiz and choose stsandard exe
In stabnd Exe u might have added references to  active exe.
So in setup by default this exes will apper
uncheck them insted choose vbrs od active x exexs.
fnished.
when u run setup it will ask for remore machine name
enter and it is configured
regards
Martin
