Hi,

I have written some software in vb2008 express which I intend to sell. Unfortunately the packaging and deployment feature (one click) is too limited.

I need to be able to-

a) Have user specify where to install the app.
b) Include other files i.e. database and .HTML files in the setup file.

I understand that to do this I will need to buy a commercial version of visual studio which will allow me to write vb (and other) programs.

Could you please let me know if my assumptions are correct and if so which version of visual studio I should get.

Thanks,

Steve

VS Standard and higher allows you to create MSI packages for deployment.

Also there's a free one, Inno, that'll create an installer as well. Inno isn't apart of .net or anything, so it's not something you use in Visual Studio.
