Hello,

Built code using release mode and installed .NET framework on the machines that I intend to install the application.

The VS solution contains references to charting packages, i.e. MS Chart Controls dll.  Where do I add these references?  I was told that the executable and references should be added to a folder on the machine.  There is also a csv file the program reads.  I'm unsure how it works with file paths etc.

Do I add a direcory on the C:/ drive, that contains a bin directory with the exe and the dll's?
