Thread: How add files to Visual Studio install?

    How add files to Visual Studio install?


    I am creating a setup package using Visual Studio installer for a VB application.

    I need to add 3 files that the "build" did not pick up (.ocx,.dll, and .tlb).

    Is there a specific way I need to add these files so they get registered
    on the users machine?

    I tried right clicking on FILES and choosing add. But when the user tried
    installing they got a message that a file could not be registered.

    Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    When you use "Package and Deployment Wizard" to create setup for your project,
    you will get an option of adding files used by your application,and which
    needs to be distributed with your application.

    In that dialog box select your required files, and Setup program will take
    care of registring those for you.
