basicly i have some settings that can vary from install to install. I was going to use an .ini file, but i figured it might just store them in the registery instead. Can i do this via a wizzard? I have screwed arround with the package deployment wizzard but have found no options that allow me to create dialogs for user input? Any ideas?
Thanks

I think null soft makes a free installer that has many examples of how to create your own dialogs. www.nullsoft.com

You have to modify the Setup1 project!

This project is installed when you install VB in the folder:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1

PDW uses this project to make the install program, modify this project by adding the wizards you want!!!

Make sure you make a copy of the original setup1 folder in case you want to return to its original state!

By the way, do not change the name of the project!!

P_SIE: Good Answer, I never even thought about that. I tottaly forgot that Package and Deployment wizard was based on a VB Template.
