Do you reference any other file inside your application?
Or open a picture? Or......

r u sure that imgview.exe has been added to ur deployment setup pack. Clarifiy it by verifying in cab files (rigth click cab file and open with winzip ).
c that it should be placed in the bin directory of ur application folder

It sounds like your application is trying to open an outside file - I'm guessing ImageView.exe is your application, right?

This could be an image or a text file, an access database, etc.  Whatever it is, the file that your application is looking for doesn't exist.  Probably it's something you used on your development machine and just forgot to include with your installation program.

I don't think that the problem is the reference to the DLL but the path to the text file you are trying to read.

Fathima,

Just because you installed on the development machine and got an error doesn't mean my initial observation was wrong.  There is a file you're trying to read that simply isn't where you're looking for it.  When you're debugging, the file exists and your application works fine.  

When you installed on your development machine I assume you installed it in a different folder (not your development folder) in which case the file wasn't added.  Just because the file exists on the computer doesn't mean you're pointing to it correctly.

You need to add the text file that you're reading to your installation program and that should solve the problem.
