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.

no need to build for XP. What is your exact problem?

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.
