Hello All,

I have created an application in VB.Net 2010 and an install program with InstallShield LE. I need to have my set up program install the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Powerpacks.VS dll when the program installs. I have a computer that does not have it on there and it will not run without it.

So what am I not doing?

Hi,

From Power Pack site, wonder if you can have this out to your installer:

Redistribute with ease

We’ve also included a Bootstrapper package to allow you to easily redistribute the Microsoft Visual Basic Power Packs with your application. This allows you to include the Power Packs in your ClickOnce Project or Setup Project by simply checking a box.

The boostrap will be create the same output directory when you craeate Windows Installer project, you might be able to use this file within Installshield.

The other way around is to include power pack setup together with your application. Run checking and install power pack during installation of you program. I do not know if Installshield LE have installscript you can manipulate with or have feature like "Run Program" for you to run certain file before setting up your programe, if it is yes than you can supply power pack setup files together with your programme.

The last installshield I used was Installshield 10 Pro before switching to Installaware, so I just barely remember if that features exist in LE or not.
