I would like to distribute my visual basic application to other people via email attachment. First I tried emailing out the exe file, and that didn't work because some DLLs and OCX files were missing. I was told to create a distribution package using the Visual Basic wizard. I did that and it created a few files. It created a setup.exe, setup.lst and a CAB file.
My question is, if I want to email my application as one file (an email attachment), do I need to send them these three files? Or are there any additional files? Will the setup.exe install the necessary DLLs and OCX files in the users appropriate directories?
My plan is to zip the needed files and email it out. Any help to this beginner in setup wizards would be appreciated.
