i am working with a vb6.0 data project.when i make package with Package and deployment Wizard,during the process,there is a window come out for me to select dependency or no dependency(general idea is so),then the package is made.but now,when i install the package,there is error. is this because of the dependency? i want to change the depency ,but when i try to make the package one more time,the window no longer come out. what is the problem?dependency can only  be selected for one time?  how to handle it ? thanks!

Hi Nick,
thank you very much! i d/l the Qsetup already,but how to use it ? media file is the .exe file made by VB? why the setup i created with Qsetup doesnot install anything?
Hi Fluuuu,

Under the FILES option, make sure you select the .EXE you have created.

Also make use of the PREVIEW facility - this runs your installation without installing any files, it demonstrates exactly what the end-user would see.

After you have clicked the COMPILE button, look at the bottom of the QSetup window, it will say something like:
"Compiled:   C:\VB_CODE\YourAppDevFolder\Setup.EXE"
The application identified above is the installer that has been created for you, you would distribute that file (C:\VB_CODE\YourAppDevFolder\Setup.EXE)


If you meant to say that QSetup did not install any components with your installation, then make sure you include them - you include them from the FILES option just like your .EXE.  You can specify that the components should be automatically registered for you upon installation, you can specify that components should be shared etc.

QSetup makes a very clean installation for you - make sure you are aware of which components you have used during your VB development, use NOTEPAD to open up your .FRM files, at the top of each .FRM (form) file you will see the list of components utilised on the form.

Regards

Nick
