Hi guys,

I Googled my problem but couldn't get exactly what i want. My problem's here:

I finished developing my VB.NET project in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

I use MySQL Server 5.0 for the database and MySQL Connector/NET 5.0.9 to communicate.

I also have crystal reports in the project.

I want to deploy my application; the program itself, MySQL database (it is in C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\data\sisdb) , MySQL Connector/NET, crystal report and redistributable .NET framework in a .exe/.msi setup file.

It doesn't matter SINGLE or MULTIPLE .exe/.msi setup(s) all i want to is to have the simple installation process in any target machine.

I'll roll on the floor thanking you for your help as i will always will.

I want you to pardon my too many redundant "i" :)

Cheers >>>

Personally I just use VS to make an installer for my apps and if the end user doesn't have the Framework installed, then the installer will go download it from MS for them. I don't distribute my apps on cd/dvd or on a flashdrive so I don't distribute it with the FW installers either.
