how to use Setup Wizard
When using the Application Setup Wizard, should I include the "Generate
Dependency File" option? Moreover, is the application generate by the setup
wizard can be run in any PC without installing the Visual Baisc and Crystal
Report? Because I need that to be able to have that capability.

The 'Generate Dependency File' option is for when you have written a DLL or
control and want to generate a .dep file. This .dep file would then be
referenced by the setup wizard when packaging a program which uses that
dll/control/etc.. eg, if you created an ActiveX control that uses, say, a
common dialog control and a data control, you would build a dependency file
for this control which would include information referencing the common
dialog/data controls. Then, when you build a setup for a program that uses
that ActiveX control, this dependency file will be examined so that the
dll's associated with the common dialog and data controls will be included
in your application's setup...even if the application does not use those
controls directly. Hope this makes sense...

Yes. The Setup routine created by the wizard should include runtime files
for VB and Crystal Reports so your target machine does not need to have
these applications installed on it to run.
