I have read several of the threads already posted on this subject..
But here goes my question....


I have my application  in a folder called C:\MyProgram
under this folder I have several access databases and   .txt   files needed for my application

I also have several subfolders

The project files are in a subfolder called
C:\MyProgram\DmTest

Under the DmTest are my  Bin and Obj folders and files....

I want to install on individual Laptops.
From a cd....  or   .exe  file

Which deployment package do I use ?

and   do I  have to select  EVERY individual  files TO BE ADDED?

Thanks

When you add an installer to your application, Add a special folder, such as the Program Files folder, then add the project output as well.  When you add the project output, all files that are part of the project you are working on will be added automatically to your program.  However, any additional files you may have, such as Access database files, etc., , you do have to specifically add them to the Installer.  You can create additional folders to support your application directory as you desire, and add your files to the appropriate folders.

Hope that helps.
