I am using VB 6 to develop my application. I have done the package and deployment for my application to create an exe file. Is there a way, suppose upon running the setup.exe program to install my VB app on a machine, and once the VB application has already been installed, my VB application will start immediately.

Please include some codes, examples and explanations. Your help is kindly appreciated.

Regards
Eugene

Hi eugene007,
Search for your Setup1.vbp project

(On my system it is in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1)

You can amend this project any way you like to suit your needs.
It is ths project the PDW uses to create your setup applications

if you look on google im sure you can find some good installers, so you can do stuff like adding Registry Keys and general stuff like that for banning people and so on.

Im not sure on getting it to start up but im sure you could probably find an article about it on the web, or even some nice people here will say stuff about it.

Disagree. I still think that my answer is correct and has PAQ value.
eugene asked for code, examples and explanations which was not given.
But then, what does he expect for 30 points?

Hi Dabas,
 I agree. what does he expect for 30 points?

I prefer splitting points, but you can't with 30 points.
If Prophecy-Online complains too then I will go back to Delete/No Refund is recommend.
