    Make a setup.exe file with .net framwork

    If I have created a form application in vc++ 2008 express edition and now want to make a setup.exe file out of this.

    What is the way to do that and I also is thinking of that the user that will run this setup.exe file on his/hers computer also will need the .NET framwork 3.5 in order to be able to run the program.

    One way is to download it and install it from the internet but is there any correct way to do this, like to also have this in the setup.exe file in any way.

    I know my question is not very clear but perheps you get my idéa ?

    I have found on this linke:
    http://www.download.com/Installer2Go...-10116722.html

    where you can create a setup.exe file like a wizard by putting the programfiles inside here but the .NET framwork will also be needed I am thinking ?

    Express probably does not have the Setup and Deployment wizard. Usually you would use this to make a setup program with an associated msi file or possible cab files. Without using this you may have to resort to something like WISE installer (which I believe must be purchased) or some other third party installer.

    Thank you Bubba, this was what I thought also.
    I did see that other Visual did have the wizard for that. I think I have found Installer2Go 4.2.5
