I'm deploying a VB.NET application with Inno installer. In the past I've used the one Click installer but now require a setup with more options.

What needs to be included when deploying a VB.NET application (developed in VS 2010). I understand that the .NET Framework needs to be installed on the PC, but what else?

Also, where do you put the DLL's on the PC where the app is installed?

You can find some explanation, here.

And a walkthrough, here.

Thanks for the help so far.

I'm reading through the MS and NSIS documentation.

The only thing I'm still not sure about is where to put the DLL dependencies.
I know you don't need to register them in .NET but where do I put them so that the application sees them?

Do you need to tell the application where to find the files?


no no. . just but them in the same directory as your application and it will automatically find them.. no need to provide and explicit location..
