Is it possible to make a setup and deployment project in VB.net 2008, every site i have looked at on google says to just select it from the project list. It isnt in the project list for me to select.Are these types of projects not available in the express version?How can I make an installer, other than using one of the setup and deployment projects? (I know there is a publish button, but that doesn't make a proper installer and installs to the appdata folder which is not what i want it to do)

I am using VS 2008 VB and setup my application software in Win XP without any issue. But after installed in Win 7, it doesn't work well (it show one file not found, but I saw the file in the right folder). Could it be the incompatibility of VS 2008 and Win 7? If I upgrade to VS 2010, will the issue be fixed?
I'm a Visual Basic beginner. There are many things that I didn't know about Windows software development as I've been a Mac user for 20 years and just started developing Windows programs several days ago.
Anyway, using Visual Studio Installer (File > Add > New Project > Visual Studio Installer), I have two files inside the Release folder - setup.exe and Setup.msi. I've got some information about these files. So when you publish your software, what do you do with these two files? According to one web site, you can put them together into one with IExpress, which produces a file with an extension of CAB. Another web site suggests SFX Compiler. In the meantime, I downloaded a dozen applications at Download.com earlier. If I click on the download button, the final delivery extension is .exe on most of them. I know that you won't go anywhere by double-clicking on setup.exe from the Release folder without Setup.msi. Meanwhile, Setup.msi is a tand-alone application. But nobody uses this file alone to distribute their product.
I've finally got a project compiled and tested and ready to roll out.I have discovered that the "Publish" option is not what it seems, and that we must create a separate "Setup Project" to carry out the task of installing the files.This is not the most intuitive process I've seen, and the online help on that subject is not easy to understand.I was hoping that someone could direct me to a tutorial or guide that would step me through the specific approach I need. Many of the other guides online are vague and address multiple scenarios and do not separate the approaches very well.I have the contents of my project in /bin/release. It runs nicely by iteself with no errors.Here's what I need:
1. To create a setup exe that I can distribute that will install my software, with all of the supporting (resource) files and folders. 2. I need the setup process to force the installer to "agree" to a EULA. 3. I'd would like to provide an image on the installation screen/popup. 4. I would like the software registered in the registry and rely on it being there in the registry. 5. I need it to default to program filesprojectname (it does by default)
I hv deployed my project using "Setup and Deployment" wizard. I hv installed MS VS.NET 2003 Bootstrapper Plugin -> A plug-in for creating deployment projects in Microsoftï¿½ Visual Studioï¿½ .NET 2003 that contain the .NET Framework version 1.1 and/or Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.7. still it is giving the error The setup requires .NET Framework 1.1.4322. Install the .NET Framework and run the setup again. The .NET Framework can be obtained from the web. Would u like to do this now?
Setup and deploy for my project worked fine for a while allowing you to install my program and uninstall the old version, but now it installs two entries. I don't get it, before I got it do do that it would give an error that it needed to be uninstalled first. Now like I said I get two entries in the programs uninstall window. RemovePreviousVersions = true. I change the version number and update the product code. Even tried changing the upgrade code. I just don't get why it doesn't work anymore, and its really annoying! Also, is there a way that the setup file can just be one .exe rather then a setup file and a data file?
I have a windows appl'n and it requires certain patch which are needed so I want to create a setup in such a that I can embbed the patch setup in my appl'n setup. I don't know whether this is feasible or not.
As part of my learning vb i started the book "microsoft ado.net 4, step by step", by Tim Patrick. I down loaded sql server 2008 express w/ no errors.
It has two folders, 1) configuration tools, 2) import and export data(64 bit). the configuration tools folder has (3) programs: 1) sql server config. manager,
2) sql server error and usage reporting, 3) sql server installation center(64-bit). The book, on page xxi, asaks to install the sample data base by download and unzip; no problem.
the book says; start sql server management studio 2008 and open a new object explorer connection to the target database instance using the file|connect object explorer menu commend. I can not find the file menu entry in any server program? There is no "object explorer"?
I have a small app I've been playing with that simply connects to a .sdf database and displays two records in a grid. I wanted to make a setup program so I can learn that functionality. Everything goes smoothly when I run the setup but when I go to run the program and try to connect to the database, I get the following error:
I have a multiline textbox which contains some words to print.My forms has one multiline textbox and a button, the properties are below:
Textbox: txtNoob Button: btnPrint
All is working perfectly, but I want the Print Setup to appear, then the user can configure the print settings before printing. You know when you print word processing document, you can choose the Print Setup or print directly, so here I want the Print Setup form to appear which will enable the user to configure the settings and print.
I have an app I'm working on that will monitor the value of an integer from a plc. This value is displayed as a label in my program. I want to store the value of these label captions on specific intervals. I'm extremely new at VB, but I'm learning as fast as I can. I need to get this up and running though. I know how to include a timer in my program, and I know how to setup a database in vb express. What I don't know is the specific code to establish the DB connection in my form, the fields in the table to write to, and how exactly to tell the form to write into the database when the timer ticks. I have read other examples of how to setup a db connection, but when I try it in my code, I keep getting messages that this isn't defined, or that isn't defined...
I have application developed in vb.net 2005 with sql server database and also used crystal report in it. I have make the setup files using deployment wizard. Now the problem is that when I install the setup files, it work on some pcs while didnt run on some others.ramework 2.0 is in its prerequisites which I install before running setup. When I try to see error message, it gives server time out
I've noticed that in VS 2005, there were plenty of new, great features, with good fixes and just a better overall system. However, it does not seem to have a very good setup wizard. You have less control over setup, and the wizard won't let me copy some files that my program needs with it.Is there a way to get a better setup wizard, or will I have to make my own? Also, how do you make a custom MSI?
Ok, imagine the simplest solution in Visual Studio 2008 with framework 3.5 (OS = Win XP) where I have added a class library. Then I've added a COM Class. This COM Class is so simple, it only exposes 1 function:
Public Function SayHello() As String Return " Hello." End Function
