How Can I Deploy a VB.Net Project without Downloading Files?

I have created a visual basic 2010 project (an office add in) that I need to deploy on to several computers that are not connected to the internet.

If I try to run the installer it needs to download 2 files from Microsoft.  Is there any way of avoiding this? I don't mind downloading the files and installing them separately, but I don't know what they are.

Cheers!

Dave

Hi mwochnick, thanks for the swift reply!!

The 3rd link on your 2nd post had the answer quite far down.  Hadn't found that doc before...

In case anyone else reads this, go into the solution property pages and make sure that the dependencies are set to be installed from the same source as the application.  It defaults to over the web...

Cheers,

Dave
