    How To Make The Program Installed In Program Files Folder?

    How do I make a program created with Visual C++ auto install to the Program Folder in Windows OS like the software that you purchased in the market?

    I mean the blue screen, accepting Terms of Agreements, etc.

    I hope you understand what I mean.


    Thanks for the input.

    You need a Installation kit. Install Shield has one as do other companies. Microsoft's Visual Studio .Net comes with one. Or you could just write your own program to act as an installer.

    It don't matter how we make it
    'Cause it always ends the same
    You can push it for more mileage
    But your flaps r' wearin' thin
    And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
    But this nightmare never ends
    Don't forget to call my lawyers
    With ridiculous demands
    An you can take the pity so far
    But it's more than I can stand
    'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
    Tell me how long has it been
    'Cause 5 years is forever
    An you haven't grown up yet

    Is it available with Visual Studio 6 Enterprise edition?

    I don't know that. I use Visual Studio 6.0 Professional which is a step down from enterprise and it came bundled with Install Shield's kit. It requires you to learn a kind of scripting language to fully utilize it.

    Lightbulb Suggestion (A free one) ...

    Hey there, javacvb. I was looking for one a while back, and found a very good free setup generator. It's called QSetup. I believe you can get it on http://www.download.com/. If not, you can search Google for it. It's kind of weird when you first start using it, but it's simple once you know what you're doing. It doesn't take a lot of time. I just thought I would make a suggestion.
