well this procedure is called as deployment
this is rather a long procedure
I cannot write it down here

I use this method to deploy the applications

pdkharker, that is for .NET applications and this forum has nothing to do with .NET.

ganesan4, the old method was to use the PDW (Package and Deployment Wizard) but it is a bit outdated and has been replaced by Windows Installer 1.1 that you used to be able to download from M$, but it has been removed by M$ in the selfish attempt to push their .NET agenda. Thankfully however there are places like this http://web.archive.o...o/aa718352.aspx that keep archives of various web sites just for this purpose. Now, if you do not want to use the WI 1.1 you can always download Inno, which is free, or Wise, which is not free (if I remember correctly).



Good Luck
