    how to use Setup Wizard


    Hi,

    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.


    Thanks
    Frankie

    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.
