VB Package and Deployment Wizard not picking up files automatically.

VB Package and Deployment Wizard not picking up files automatically.

VB Package and Deployment Wizard not picking up files automatically.

(OP)
At the Package and Deployment Wizard - Included Files

I must be doing something wrong, as i cannot believe I have to sit there and browse to and open one file at a time to add files using the wizard.
When i get to the screen Package and Deployment Wizard - Included Files, only 3 or 4 files have been auto added and have check marks. It says to add files, click the add button. Then I browse to the file I want to add and click open.
Now that is ridiculous, as I have about 100 files to add in 7 different directories...
I cannot believe this has to be manual.. What the hell am I doing wrong.

This is visual basic 6 Pro and Xp Professional.

Thanks
Tom

Download visual installer 1.1 from microsofts msdn website. It does a much better job

Package and Deployment Wizard scans your project for system files that may be needed, it will not find your application files.

You might consider buying "Install Wizard" used by many comercial packages

RE: VB Package and Deployment Wizard not picking up files automatically.

I agree with johnwm. It is unlikely you will find a better installer than Inno (jrsoftware).
