VIX redistribution

Hi everyone.

I am developing a little app that uses VIX API and want to redistribute the API with the app. My problem is that I can't find how to do it (or I don't understand it). I try to follow this link where there is a walkthrough called "Compiling on Windows Without Wrapper Library" but there are 3 differences from what I want to do:

1. We are using it toward vSphere (but I think I can manage finding the correct folder)
2. The program is written C# (I can change the include statement there)
3. I'm using Visual Studio 2008 (There is my main problem)

I cannot add the DLLs referred in the explanation, I can only add the wrapper and only when VIX is installed (doesn't work if I copy the DLL to another folder and uninstall). We really need to avoid installation of VIX as it is quite big (250+ MB).

To sum up. Everything works fine when VIX is installed but I cannot assume that all our users will have VIX and redistributing the VIX installer is not an option.

Anyone has an idea how I can add the correct DLLs to my project and make it work on a machine that doesn't have VIX installed?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got an answer on the VMWare forum that the installer is doing a lot of stuff that is difficult to replicate. We'll try to use something other than VIX to achieve our goals...
