Does Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition provide Deployment of windows application using Setup Project

If it doesnĄ¯t, then Please tell me whether we can create a deployment kit of a windows application using Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition.

Is there SDK available for this functionality which is available to the full version.

Thanks,

Nitin

The Express editions provide ClickOnce installation, and don't come with Setup Projects.

You can either:

  • Use ClickOnce deployment (quick and easy, especially for simple applications)
  • Upgrade to Visual Studio, which contain the setup projects
  • Use a third-party installation tool (useul for complex installations, and you are already familiar with such tool).
