I did a trial install of a 3rd party project builder but it seems to have removed my Package and deployment wizard addin. I would like to know how to get it back

while installing choose custom installation and you will get a tree view just explore it and select tools only to be installed. That will fix you problem.

you may just want to register the ocx
i.e

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\PDWIZARD.OCX"

The path may be vary

Thanks for the replies.. I have managed to get the PD working but it wasn't actually the cause of my fault (which is still there).  Thanks to asvforce for help on that.

All along my issue has been that I can't make VB 6 executables as the 'Make' menu of the VB IDE is greyed out for some reason. I thought it was the PDW causing it but it appears its not that?  Any ideas please

I found it. Basically all i had to do was reset the VB IDE menus and the Make menu was available again. See link http://weblogs.asp.net/lbarbieri/archive/2003/12/11/42801.aspx

I have awarded my points to asvforce as he answered the question I posted (even if it was actually nothing to do with my problem in the end). Many thanks for replies
