My goal is to compile this program so that it can be installed to another computer that does not  have Vb installed on it. How can I tell the Build to include all dependency files?
I just used the Build - Publish feature of VB Express 2008.  When I try to install the program on another computer it tells me:
          An error occured downloading the following resource:
          http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Linklk=101349&clcid=0x409
I copied the entire .log below.  The error is on the last line and while it is trying to install it says that a download is in progress.

You need to create a setup package to deploy your program. Open you project. Go to fie, new, project and select setup wizard, follow the prompts. This is how it works in VS 2005, I assume it's similar in VS 2008 express.

Correct Path, however my steps are a dead end.
File - Add - New Project
Displays a window of Icons, but none of them say Setup and Deployment Projects.  I tried the VB Help which says to use Imports & Exports on the tool bar to get the settings and imported everthing it had available.  It still has the same exact Icons.  Do you know how to add it as a selection? Thank You

My particular version vb 2008 Express Edition does not contain the Setup & Deployment option because it is the free version.  I will have to ask my company to purchase the program to have that feature available, Thank You
