I wonder if you can help
 
I am programming in vb6 Pro but am told by a Windows 2000 Pro user that Windows cannot update Windows files. I assume due to WFP what can I do or can I not deploy to Windows 2000 or XP

I have started using Visual Studio Installer will the outmatically solve these problem, and tips on its use would also be appreciated.

Okay a bit confused by your question. But yes Visual Stuido Installer will work installing on WIn2K and XP.
It creates an .MSI file, basically this file contains dependencies and your exe to deploy (Shows in add remove programs as well).

You can customize your install to a certain level but you will need to download Microsoft ORCA, to edit the MSI file for more control (Thats if you need it, e.g. installing a service). ORCA allows you to edit the MSI database, if you open it up (MSI file) its just a big metabase.

But usually just using Visual Studio installer is enough for most desktop applications.
