I am using Visual Studio Visual Basic 6.0
Will The dependency files (.DLL and .OCX ) be included automatically during the build. If not, how do you add them. I am using demo version Install Creator Pro and Install Creator and wnt to make a decision as whioh one to purchase.
Thanks in advance

To answer the first question, make your VB6 project. Take the *.exe file/package and install it on a computer that has no VB6 files. If the project doesn't work then you may need to use an installer. Note: you might have register VB6 support files on the new computer.

No, they are not included.

If not, how do you add them.

Look at the .DEP file generated by VB, it contains the list of dependencies to include with your application, and where to install them (refer to the documentation of VB for the meaning of the directory macros). You have to include at least the V6 runtime DLL, install it to the Windows system directory and register it (with the Register OCX/DLL option of IC). You may have to include other DLL/OCX files if you use ActiveX controls in your application, or if you access databases.

If you are not sure of what to do I would recommend you to use a package that automatically includes dependencies, that would be easier for you.
