Hi

I have a VB.net Windows Forms application that I have published to a folder on my computer.
I want users on my ASP.net website to be able to install the application on their computers from this website.
Do I just put the installation files into a folder on my web site? I am not sure how to go about this.
I created my application in Visual Studio 2010. My website was built in ASP.net 2015.

Thanks

you will need to create an installation package (.msi), copy this package to your website and provide a link from your package. The user clicking on it (as long as they are running a Windows computer) will be able to download the package and install it
