Application Deployment

Posted 20 November 2011 - 10:51 AM

I have created my application and am ready for deployment. I am using VS 2010 Pro. I have tried to use the Build>>Publish but I do not want to use those options. Could someone help on deployment of my application? If you could point me in the direction on a tutorial or video, that would be great. I am only able to find things on deployment of VS 2008.

Thank you.

When I publish the program it installs in C:\Program Files\HP or something similar. When that is done for some reason it uninstalls my plugs-in for my web browser and deletes the files that were in that folder, when the program get uninstalled all is back to normal. How do I set the default install location, or even possibly let the user select the install path?

If you created an installer as shown in the tutorial without removing the Installation folder in User Interface, then user will have a chance to change installation folder during installation process...

But that is not a permanent solution, you need to set the default folder location which will not affect other programs, or may be the problem is with the project itself and not the installer

I did not remove anything. But that is not what I get. I guess I will have to mess around with it a little more. Perhaps re-write using my desktop instead of my laptop.
