Package And Development


Hi,

I am trying to use the Microsoft Visual Studio Package and Development tool, to create an installable file from my VB project.

I have included a large amount of multimedia (images, flash and audio) in the project, and these are all located within folders and sub-folders, in the same directory as the VB project. So I have used the App.Path command in all my code.

The problem is that I cant seem to find a method of including folders (and all of the folders contents) in to the install file. I have to manually add each file to each folder! Which is very tedious!!

Is there a way around this??

Or does anybody know if there is an alternative better 'Packaging and Development' tool available, (as freeware preferably), for Visual Basic 6!

Many Thanks, Matt

Does anyone know if you can get the Package & Development
wizard to run code or another exe during the installation? I want
to create a DSN. I know how to do this in code, but if possible I want to do it during the installation.

Thank you

Package && Development
I used the Package & Development package wizard in the Visual Studio 6 to make my distribution package. I have been successfully installed to a few computers running on WinNT 4.0 workstation. But somehow when I installed onto one of my server which running WinNT 4.0 server, it did installed successfully. When I run the application, it prompted me that there is no provider.

My application using MS ActiveX Data objects library 2.5 and MS ActiveX Data obejects recordset 2.6.

Does the P&D wizard bundle in the required Jet enginer version 4 and make the setup package to install the Jet to the system ? How to ensure it is bundle in ?

Package Development Error
Good Evening All,

I have a rather anoying error when I use the Package Development program.

My program compiles and runs through the development process OK and even installs the program in the correct folder that I have chosen.

Here is my problem. The program shows up in the "All Programs listing from the Sart menu, BUT it won't run the program because it keeps searching for a very old name I used when I first started writing the program. This may seem a bit Double Dutch so please bear with me.

Right click on a program and select properties. Up the top of the window you have 'Target Location' which tells you where the program is and what file name start the program. THIS is where the problem lies. This shows the old name "NW" but the program is now saved and compiled to "Nationwide".

I have tried everything I know and I still cannot get this to alter - Any ideas?

Help! Development Package Wizard
Hi Everyone,

I have just finished a small development and I am trying to pack
it up into a neat package using package development wizard.

I have one of my own DLLs and a few standard components added to the
exe.

Unfortunately when I try to include Package development wizard using
the projects components options I get an error reading

"DLL error" AAAAGGGh!!!!

I don't want to bother with such a small development, developing my own install program! I have tried removing it with VB install and then readding the package development wizard but this has not helped.

Does anyone know which DLL this is referring to, is the problem that I have my own DLL (a reference within the project) not in the c: windows system directories, or is this a common problem with the install of VB?!?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Package And Development Wizard?
I have packaged my vb6 program using the package and development wizard. My question is when I install the exe on a computer and then like 6 months down the road want to install it on another computer, will the data that has been entered between that time frame be overwritten when I install it on that other computer? Any help will be appreciated.

thanks jeffro

Package && Development Wizard. Again!
An error occurs when installing the application using the setup created by Package and Deployment Wizard on CERTAIN MACHINES.
During the installation, Setup copies files to the “temp” directory and prompts that certain files need to be updated. When it starts updating those files, it reports an error “Can not find source file. The file could not be installed”. It indicates a temp file in “C:windows emp” directory. Then the installation aborts.
The size of the temp file is 0 bytes. Hence there seems to be some problem in the installation.
We have tried restarting the machine, checked the hard disk space ( we have around 5 GB in the c: drive ). The same setup application works on few other machines. The OS involved is Win95.
any help will be appreciated.
thanks

Package && Deployment Hangs At Loading Package Types
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. Thanks.

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,
Arch

Package And Deployment Wizard Not Generating Package
Hi,

I am trying to generate a package, for a Visual Basic application I wrote, through the Package and Deployment Wizard utility. PDW seems to work great until it gets to the last step. 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,

Which Is Better? Development On XP Or 98?
The program I'm developing is being made over two computers, my pc at home (XP), and a laptop with win98. I just copy the source code files over from one computer to the other when necessary.

I'm almost finished the program, and wanted to know which would be easier: should I make the installation cd on XP, or on win98? Are programs packaged on XP backwards compatible?
I need this software to work on win2000 computers, mainly.

PDA Development.
hopefully, someone can help me here.
I had the winCE developers kit which I used to program apps for the pocket PC.
Unfortunately, I am now using windows XP and the installer doesn't work. I assume this is because I am still using VB6 and not .Net

Is there a download that does work with XP and VB6?

DLL Development
Bah this is frustrating. I've never used DLLs before in my programming. Trying to start to now though because I have a few subs that I like to use throughout a few various programs. But for some reason I can't get a single DLL I make to work.

I've seen other peoples DLLs and the code in them and they work just fine. But if I create my own DLL it just returns automation or with block not set errors. What gives? Is there some setting I'm missing or something when creating DLLs?

I can't even get a simple DLL with only this code to work...


VB Code:
Public Function ReturnValue() as integer     returnvalue = 5End Function


.... something that simple and can't make it work. I can reference it in another program fine.. and declare it. But when I try to call the function and set something equal to the value it returns I get a with block error.

*sigh* can anyone help me here?

Thanks,

Steven Hickerson

VB Development
What do you consider a reasonable range ($$) for contract development work using VB6 inside the US??

Which OS For Development
Which operating system is best for development?

In the past I have used Win98, my new computer though comes complete with XP.

I will be developing programs to run on 98, 2000 and Nt but not XP at the moment, programs compiled on 98 worked fine on these. Am I going to run into problems using XP as the development OS, or would people advise installing an earlier version such as 98.

Any advise you could give me would be of help.

App Development
Hi All,

I am developing an app in VB6 which will will have wide circulation with different report requirements for different installations. I want to avoid having different compiles for each location by using dll's to contain the reporting code. Since each report has forms specific to the options for that report I need to be able to create the forms in code at run-time from the dll's. Is this possible? Or do I have to create exe's todo this? Or is there a better way that anyone can suggest?

TIA,
