Package and deployment Wizard
Posted on 2003-12-01
I've a couple of questions regarding the Package and Deployment wizard that comes with VB:
1) How to include copying of an "external" file?
I have lots dat and database files that is not created when I generate the cab files. However, during the installation, I would like to copy these files into their respective directories. E.g.
Apps_dir > Bin_dir
Bin_dir contains all my applications binaries (exe and dlls), Data_Dir contains databases, File_dir contains additional data files. I would like to maintain the same directory structure on the installed PC. Can I do that with the wizard?
2) I would like to package my application such that all the exe, dlls, ocx etc goes into one CD, all the databases and dat file into another. How do I do that in the wizard?
If the wizard is not able to do so, would anyone recommend a 3rd party installation support software that can do that?
