I have converted a VB6 application to VB.NET
I am now ready to do my first "Package and Deployment" (vb6 terms)
I need to:
 - deploy the application to a specific sub directory on the installation PC.
 - Add additional files I use in my application and be installed in the specific sub directory, format types of
   - MsAccess with a .accdb extension
   - pictures with a .jpg extension
   - text files with a .txt extension
As well as some third part drivers that I use.
   - per the driver supplier, some of these files need to go in the same sub directory as my .exe file

Eric,
I just found and downloaded this,
will this give me the capability to create an installation similar to P&D in VB6???
The installation will go on a Windows 7 PC.
What does "limited" restrict me from?

Isn't there something that comes with Studio that would allow me to do this??
I wouldn't think that I could purchase VS Professional and couldn't deploy my applications.

When I get to the Installation Interview, I can't get it do anything.
I have everything set to "no"

it is just that it isn't installed by default because it is coming from a 3rd party company but it is advertised by Microsoft as you can see from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/wtzawcsz.aspx
