i am waiting for ur tips and help regarding this issue...

is it in the visual basic 6 or VB.NET? version

Both have wizards to do this

its in vb 6.0
can u help in this regard

i am waiting for ur reply....:eek:

some editions of VB6 can make an installer by going to:

Start -> Microsoft Visual Basic 6 -> Visual Basic Tools -> Package and deployment wizard

(See screenshots)

If you dont have this then choose File -> Make (projectname).exe
then find this .exe file and use one of the many freeware installers

Thank you....
i will try it ...

did it work?
