    The Professional & Enterprise editions of VB come with a setup wizard, do you not have this available to you?

    Its called an installation package. You can use Package & Deployment Wizard that comes with VB but some people have problems installing into Win2k/XP.

    Inno Setup

    InnoScript

    Windows Installer 3.0

    Visual Studio Installer 1.1

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/do...1/default.aspx

    They are all free.

    I've been programming with VB for 15 years. Started with VB4 16bit Pro, VB5 Pro, VB6 Pro/Enterprise and now VB3 Pro. But I'm no expert, I'm still learning.
