I have created a VB.NET forms application with a SQL Server Express 2008 back end.
I need to add the SQL Server and Installer files to the deployment project because many users will be deploying the app where they do not have web access to download the files.
I have added the files to the project Application path, but when I build the Deployment project it errors with the message:
"The install location for prerequisites has not been set to 'component vendor's web site' and the file 'DotNetFX35SP1\dotNetFX20\aspnet.msp' in item '.NET Framework 3.5 SP1' can not be located on disk. See Help for more information."
Can anyone tell me where I have to put these files for the build to succeed?
I am also having difficulty getting the install path correct on the end users machine with an icon. I want the application to be on the programs menu under the application name with an Icon - but in test runs it just appeared at the bottom of programs.
Thank you for your help
