    Hi Phil,

    I have tried the package and Deployment Wizard for my software.
    A package folder with a Support folder, .cab and a setup are created.
    I copied the whole package folder to another PC and run the setup.exe. However, when i executed my exe file, it still prompt me an error "Unknown error in finding XXX.dll"

    in my code, i have this dll registered
    ShellReturn = Shell("regsvr32 /s ""C:\HOB\XXX.dll""", vbHide)

    can you advise what had i done wrong?

    Did you include XXX.dll in your setup? Are you installing it to C:\HOB\ on the target system?

    I don't know of a simple way to use the Package & Deployment Wizard to install a file at an arbitrary location; you would have to modify the Wizard's source code. Instead, I recommend that you use Visual Studio Installer or a third-party setup tool which allows you to specify the target locations of individual files.
