Could someone Please help me with the following question. I
have created a small application in VB6, I am trying to create a
install program to deploy my app to various computers around the
office. I am not use to VB6, and it's deployment Wizard.
First will VB6 compiled applications run on Windows95
Second: When I was coding in VB5 I could use it's setup
program wizard to create the setup disks on floppys. In other words
the wizard would put the install program right on the disks for you.
Prompting you for each disk during the creation of the install
program. Can and how do I do the same with VB6 and it's "Package and
Third: I have read some of the MSDN help files on the Package
and deployment Wizard. From what I could understand i needed to first
create a deployment file, and run the Package and deployment wiz again
and create the package, which I assume is the install program. Then
the examples stated to copy the preinstallation files 'setup.exe and
setup.lst to the first disk, and copy the remaining bootstrap.cab
files onto the rest of the first disk and any subsequent disks that
are needed. After all bootstrap.cab files are copied, copy the rest
of your .cab files onto the necessary disks. What are the bootstrap
cab files. The only .cab files I get after running the package and
dep wizard a second time is myapp1.cab and myapp2.cab After I copy
the setup.exe and the setup.lst and myapp1.cab to disk 1 and
myapp2.cab to disk two, I can run the install, but I get errors during
the install like
Class not registered
looking for object with
Run-Time error '91'
object variable or with block variable not set.
during runtime I get
an access violation occurred while copying files
Note: this app runs fine in the compiler with out errors, on my win98
Could someonel PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me what I'm doing wrong and
how to get a working install.
