Is there an easy way to deploy a DLL to a different system using Visual Studio 2005?  The program is in C++ and needs to be deployed on XP and Server 2000.

Thanks for any advice and/or help.

    Check out ("Setup and Deployment Projects") and proceed to ("How to: Add Items to a Deployment Project") - you will find all steps linked in the tree in the left browser pane. If you need to install the runtime DLLs, you will find them all together at ("Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)")
