iSeries cwbx.dll Redistribution

I have created a .Net (VB) application that uses the cwbx.dll from the iSeries suite in order to connect and make program/command calls against an AS400 machine.  I have to redistribute this application to many machines and have created a Setup project to build an installation package which of course includes the cwbx.dll module.  When I try to install my application on a machine that does not have iSeries installed, I get a registration error for the cwbx.dll module.  I assume this is because the cwbx.dll is missing required modules... so my question is, is it possible to create an installation package that will support the cwbx.dll or is this impossible without installing the iSeries with every installation?

AFAIK, you need to do a "Minimal Install" of Client Access to each machine before distributing your application.  It is part of our required configuration.  

I'm sure you can figure out away to do it (licensing comes to mind, though).  Here are relevant threads:

Hi pprater1,

AFAIK, it's enough add the map  C:\Program Files\IBM\Client Access\Shared to the  to the install-package.
