Hello,

Can anyone direct me to some begginer's documentation on how to create my first c# setup project using Visual Studio 2005?
I am looking for a step by step approach since I am completely new to doing this...

Thanks Much!

which version of Visual Studio 2005?
In the express edition you have the ClickOnce feature, other editions have the Publish Wizard

I use VS 2005 Professional. Which method do you feel would be the easiest to get up to speed on?

ClickOnce or Publish Wizard. I will not have the internet for installation (if that is needed with ClickOnce)

Thanks

you can use the publish wizard, you just launch it at the Build menu -> Publish...
and follow the instructions, you can publish for either web or an instalation disk (or folder)
Also you can specify if you want to install also required components (like .net framework, database support and others), locally or from internet.

Hi James this looks like it will work but ...

When I tried running the setup file I get a message that the GAC needs vjslib Version 2.0.0.0. I tried adding this with a setup project as a merge module (I successfully added the Crystal REports merge module this way) but it doesnt work.

Any ideas why ??
