    Question How to run VC++ App on the other PC

    Hi!

    I'd like to know, how can I run VC++ Application on the client computer. Must I use some sort of SetUp program (like PDW in VB) or is it enough just to copy exe file to the target PC?
    In case of SetUp, which one should I use (I have PDW and Inno).
    Regards!

    Hard to say

    First of all, you're only allowed to distribute your executable files if you have the professional / enterprise edition of vc++ (read your M$ EULA)

    If it's just a single .exe, that should be fine.

    Small windows utilities which you can d/l off the net typically come in a .zip file (minimally containing prog.exe, prog.hlp and a readme.txt), which you simply unzip into a directory of your choice, and then use.

    A complex program, which installs DLL files into the windows directory, shares other windows DLL files or modifies the registry should really have an install program.

    Hi!

    Thanx. I have Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise edition. So, if I want to distribute my app (database app for the convenient store), I should use an install program. The problem is that I really don't know how (shall I make one by myself or can I use PDW or somethig to do the job for me. In my app I use DAO and some other OCXs' whitch need to be registered!).
    Regards!

    I found a good installer... I think its this .....

    You just create a script on how you want the setup to work.....(registry editing etc.....) and then compile it.....

    Read the docs.... they have all the info
