Setup and Deployment Wizard - missing PADDIN.DLL

Hi All,

I have created an installation setup for Visual Basic application. When I tried to run the installation file, I got an error saying  can't register dlls. As I found out this was a Microsoft bug and I have sorted that, but there is one dll that it tries to install, but I can't find any reference to it. It is PADDIN.DLL. I have dereferenced it within the deployment and setup wizard. And the application works, but just to understand it - as with every setup it includes in the dependency files, but dereferencing doesn't seem to harmthe project. Does anyone know what this dll is doing?

Secondly when I run the setup wizard, it sometimes comes up with a list of dlls that it can't find the reference and prompts for not referencing these file. I try to understand why I get this list as some of these dll's I am not aware of using in the project. So I wonder where they are picked up from.

ok, try by changing destinations of those dll's which make trouble to application folder rather than system folder
This reduces such errors some times.
