Am having issues running DLLs and exe's in Windows 7 32bit. These were compiled in XP 32bit. Is there any step missing? Should I have seperate packages compiled for Windows 7 and XP?

Visual Studio 2008
VB.NET
MSI installer

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

do you have the same .Net framework installed? do you have any components/requirements that are nont installed?

Maybe there is a problem with your .NET Framework that installed in your copy of Windows 7, try to download and install .NET Framework 3.5:

OK. I will test it out ... I think its the .NET version issue and Win 7 Admin rights too.

How do we force check and install .NET Framework 3.5 during setup installation?

Thanks for all the prompt replies.
