Does anyone know, what "files" am I supposed to include in my setup project?

I've noticed that in a couple of projects, I have a "bin" subdirectory, with an exe, a dll, and a couple other files.  Is there any standard guideline here?

Thanks.

Unless you are using other References outside of the DotNet framework...you should not have to include anything really...for example if you were using Crystal Reports you would have to add in the Crystal Merge Modules...

My typical Setup after compiling is an
MSI FILE
SETUP.EXE
SETUP.INI

You should not have to manage your BIN directory at all with VB.Net as far as I know

Hi there...
Create a set up projects using VS.Net's Setup & Deployment... it will automatically include all the files needed. Take a look here...
