Hi,

My application is almost finished. But misses one crutial thing. It doesn't have a wizard to install. And one with where the user must enter a serial-number. I have looked at the Setup and Deployment from VS2010. But I don't think it has that feature.

Does anyone know where i can get this component? Or how to make on?

Greetings,

You should be able to use this in Visual Studios http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2kt85ked.aspx

other options are;

You can use the freeware "insted" to make an installer

If you want to spend the money you can use "installshield"

I have noticed when I use Setup Project from VS2010 that there is a
property called ProductCode !!!

Is this what I want and how do I customize it.
