Is It Possible To Create Install Package By P&&D Without ST6UNST.LOG File Is List?
I understand that ST6UNST.LOG is a neccessary file used for complete application uninstall process.
My point of problem is on, I try to make some setup that most contain only .DLL and neccessary file for run application. Application file and data will be stored on Server site. At this point I think the folder for my application on client site is no need (only ST6UNST.LOG may stored on application directory).

So Is it possible to create install package by P&D without ST6UNST.LOG file is list? (But still aviable for uninstall)
Or Is it possible to create install package by P&D that uninstall process is not need? (Install once and never uninstall)
And How?

How Do I Create A Single Install File From The Package And Deployment Wizard?
Ok. Everytime I use the package and deployment wizard to create my install package, it creates a .exe, a .cab, and a .lst file.

I only want a single file, AppName_Installer.exe How can I get this result?

Call me a stupid noob or whatever, just be sure to include in your insult how to create the single file installer. I need a single file that I can send out to my company for each user to install. If I try to send two or three files, I can just imagine how many errors I am going to get emails and calls about.
Thanks in advance.

Package 'cannot Find File' - L:Package\@test.exe
Hi,

I created a package for my software (written in VB6), but when I try to install, it tells me that a file: L:Package\@test.exe cannot be found (L:Package is the location of the package). Test.exe is supposed to be built into the package, but I get this error. Also, when it tries to remove the installed files, it just gets stuck and crashes.

Anyone got any ideas? - a quick reply would be greatly appreciated.

Package Deployment Wizard - Create DSN
Hi Friends,

Am back with a question again!
I am using the VB Package And Deployment Wizard to setup a project which uses a crystal report. This crystal report uses a DSN
After setting up the project on a different m/c, to make it to work, I am forced to create the DSN manually. Instead, is
there a way to combine the creation of DSN along with the setup so that I can do it all in one Setup.exe? Thanks for all your help. This site is truly a excellent source of information.

Can The VB Package Create Folder In Giving Path?
I want to create a folder to be use for my application log,

Create A Package && Deloyment Installation Wizard.
I created a pkg and distribute to a user. The people who had VB installed it works
and the people who don't have a VB installed it DOES NOT work on their machine.

Is that the location of the STARTUP GROUP (StartMenu,Prgrams,dtest,dtest)

WHERE DO I set the Install location of these file ( .OCX, .EXE) to $(WinPath) or $(ProgramsFile) ?

so what files are missing from this pkg so people who don't have the VB installed on their pc can't
run this..

What other files should I zip them up? I don't think I have to zip up the (.vbp) and forms?

thanks,
stash

Package And Deployment, Can´t Create Folder Structure!???
Hi there,
I have ad to whip together an asministraotr program that sends a database, the webpages and the images to the webserver. Each of these are stored in a seperate folder and the exe file is in the root
eg
App folder -exe file
               -Web Pages folder
               -Images folder
               -Database folder

So this is how I would like to install my program but the deployment and packaging wizard doesn´t seem to allow for folder(folder content) inclusion so I would have to select all the files individually( there are hundreds) and then it doesn´t seem to install them in there orginal path, ie an Images folder is not created and x.gif is put into it, instead it is placed in the root folder. Big problem for me is this!!
Is it possible to set up the above folder structure in a setup program using the package and deployment wizard and get it to place the files in them.

Any help would be great

Cheers in advance

How To: Create A Setup.exe Package That Will Only Download VB Runtimes If Neccessary!
Dont you hate having to distribute a 1.5mb setup exe because of the minority of people that do not have the visual basic 6 runtimes installed? I know for me, personally, it is extremely frustrating to know that my exe is 60kb, but my setup.exe is 1.5mb because it includes the runtimes.

Finally, after months of searching, I have a solution. Using innosetup, there is some code available that will make a setup.exe that can check if the runtimes are installed correctly, and if not, it will download them from the internet .

This will save you a lot of bandwidth, and people can download your applications in a heart beat instead of waiting for a 1.5mb download (especially if they are on dialup)

This is truly the best thing I have seen for vb in a long time and I wish I found it earlier. No longer will you have to incorporate the vb6 runtimes making your setup files 10x bigger just because of the small minority of people that do not have them installed.

VB6 Package File Not Working
Hello,

I am trying to make an exe file that when rau, deploys the files joined to it to specific directories list in the code of the package exe.

It deploys all the files, but the problem is that one of the exe files it deploys does not work after (works fine on its own).

Could this be because it was compressed or maybe I have to adjust my code so that exe's work when deployed.

Please have a look:

VB Code:
Sub Main()    Dim FileNum     As Integer    Dim DataArray() As Byte        DataArray = LoadResData(101, "CUSTOM")    FileNum = FreeFile    Open "C:MyProgram.exe" For Binary As #FileNum    Put #FileNum, 101, DataArray()    Close #FileNum        Erase DataArrayEnd Sub


Thanks anyone

File Description In Package And Deploy
Hi all,

First of all I'm not 100% sure if this post is in the correct area.

I have been playing around with setcursorpos (API) in my app to set the cursor over the correct command button on a MSCOM1 event. That is all working now (thanks largely to many posts on this forum), but when I go to the package and deploy wizard I get a message "file missing user.dll". When I search my PC I don't have a user.dll anywhere on my system. The declare is "user32.dll" is this the file is should be assigning in the package and deploy wizard?

Thanks for any help

Compile Exe File VS Deployment Package VB6
Hi,

I know how to create exe file (File menu -> create exe.file)
and I know how to deploy the package to make a setup.exe file (install it in the every user workstation)

However,
what is the different between them?

Just create exe file, every user can use it and run it, doesn't need to install anything.

if I deploy the package, and then every user need to intall it on their workstation, and then run it.

They work same thing.

What is the advantage for deployment the package?

Thanks.

Using VB6 on Vista. I haven't used my package and deployment for a while but today I recompiled my application and tried to ceate a new package for deployment. It got as far as "loading package types..." and quit. I reinstalled the program a couple of times without success. I noticed at the top of my 'Add-in Manager' there is an item that says "<MISSING>AFVBAddinConnect" if that makes any difference. Hopefully, someone has a solution or reason why this is occurring.

Oracle Package.Procedure Works But Package.Function() Does Not ?
Hi,

I am trying to call a function in a package in Oracle, from VB. I am using the traditional ADODB with connection, command and parameter objects. The function has 6 input parameters and it returns a string value.

We have no problems reaching the similar Procedure under a package, but when it comes to accessing the function, it gives errors. I got "no descriptor found", after some changes "object stored Procedure does not exist" .

Any suggestions on how differently to access a function within a package as opposed to a procedure ?

Thanks,

Package & Deployment Wizard Truncated File Names
I am using the Package & Deployment Wizard distributed with VB and patched
to SP5 and I am finding that as well as installing the correct DLL, e.g.
ScrClient.Dll, an identically sized DLL is also being installed, e.g.
ScrClien.Dll. For each file being installed that has a filename > 8
characters a truncated version is also installed. The truncated files are
not included in the .cab file. I am installing onto a Win98 PC. Does anyone
know what could be causing this problem?

Package && Deployment Wizard File Paths Problem
I am attempting to package an application I have written which includes several dll and ocx files. When following through the steps in the wizard I specify the location of each of these e.g.

$(Program Files)PhoenixCommon
$(Program FilesPhoenixBin - for the exe.

However when I attempt to run the setup.exe which is created it attempts to install into directory C:Program FilesSA

(SA is the name of the project)

Has anyone got any ideas about this. I have been attempting to get this working for several weeks now.

Thanks,

When I click the "Finish" button, instead of generating the package, with its setup and library files, it bombs out/exits without giving any clue/error message why.

I would appreciate any help you could give me on that.

Thanks,

TM
