Hi,

I'm using the Windows installer to create a Setup project for a VB.NET project (VS 2010), how do I modify my setup  not to overwtite existing files?

Thanks,

Victor

Add the file to the installer project separately (instead of as a project output) and mark it as permanent in properties.

Hi,

I understand adding the files in the installer section but the problem is these files need to be in the LinkFiles folder after I install the application and I can't seem to add a folder in that section. How do I fix this problem?

Thanks

While in the application folder, right click and point to Add. You should see Folder in the submenu as shown in attached screenshot.
