Incorporating Inno in PDW VB 6.0

I downloaded the inno software.. Its great I was able to create script easily, I saved the .iss file on my cd..I am assuming this .iss file works the same way as setup.exe in vb6.0 created by PDW, but that not the case.. the .iss file is looking for files before starting the setup process..

Source: "C:\myapp\myfile.exe"; DestDir: "{app}"; Flags: ignoreversion
Source: "C:\myapp\Database.zip"; DestDir: "{app}"; Flags: ignoreversion
Source: "C:\myappq\Manual.pdf"; DestDir: "{app}"; Flags: ignoreversion
Source: "C:\myapp\printresults.XLS"; DestDir: "{app}"; Flags: ignoreversion


How do I take care of this.. i.e can someone help me to create a setup file for VB 6.0 application using inno software..

Thank you.

hellooo
why to incorporate ,,,,INNO is a complete packaging software
after creating .iss file you can easily build your setup.exe file from within InnoSetup ,the builder will checkup your script and then build the installation file
from menus select build ----> compile ,the setup file will be created in folder output in the same folder where the setup.iss exist.

since I got Inno software ,I 'd never use PDW
