Package & deployment wizard

When I try to make a setup file for application I encounter a few bugs.
This are the steps I make:

- I select the project for which I want a setup file.
- I choose for package

- I choose packaging script: Standard setup package 1

- I choose package type: standard setup package

- I select the folder where I want to install the package

- Then I get to choose which file I want to include in the package
These are present in that screen:
mscomctl.ocx
msvcrt.dll
myfile.exe << my file
scrrun.dll
setup.exe
setup1.exe
st6unst.exe
VB6 Runtime and Ole automation
VB6stkit.dll

- I choose for single cab

- Installation title: myfile 1.0.0.

- I choose a start menu group

- Then I can modify the install location of the files:
mscomctl.ocx
myfile.exe
scrrun.dll
(but I leave it as it is)

- I don't choose to share myfile.exe

- I save the settings of the session under standard setup package 1
- I press finish

The setup file has been created in the target directory
Along with the files:
myfile.exe
setup.lst
and a directory has been created with the name:Support

When I run the setup file I choose to install to the directory:
c:\program files\project1

It tries to install but I receive the message:
c:\windows\system\msvcrt.dll
An access Violation occured while copying the file

And the installation is aborted.

Why is the installion aborted, and why are there so many files in the package ?
(I thought it would create just one setup file)

msvcrt is Micosoft Visual C++ runtime file and is used by Windows. If you try to install some package with PDW in Windows98 you will get this error as Win98 would not allow you to do so. In higher versions the error is internally ignored by Windows. Don't package it with your application as it will be there in every Windows version. If you do package then ignoring it wont be any problem.
