hi all,

I have a problem with setup and deployment project.

I do a setup and deployment project by using a wizard or a setup project. After I add my exe file and some dll files in the application folder and run the msi file, I notice that the exe file and dll file's version are not the latest version of my exe or my dll.

example :

aaa.dll latest version is 2.0
bbb.dll latest version is 3.0
exe file created at 21 april 2003 6 pm

my msi files will load

aaa.dll version 1.0 which is i created few hours before version 2.0 created.
bbb.dll also version 2.0
exe file will be 21 april 2003 4 pm

I need a big help here, I stuck on this for a whole day. :(

Thanks in advance for helping me

You need to do a rebuild on your application before doing a rebuild on the setup files as well. What I usually do is go to the project properties and add this to be rebuild.

The you can just do a rebuild all on the project and it will compile your program, then compile the setup and deployment which must be done anytime you rebuild your application.

Don't add the exe file directly by browsing your computer, add the special item "output of project <your project name>".

Yes I do object!!

My answer was correct and although he hasn't come back and said anything I think that my answer should deserve the points. But would love to know from the author the result of his/her situation though.
