I have been developing an application from the past three months and finally i have managed to finish it off..of course with all your help...now the time for creating an install program has come...i have been digging for good install programs but most of them turned out to be highly expensive;hence ruled out...now i have zeroed-in on inno setup...
I would like to know what all files should be included in the setup if my application uses the following:
connection to access using jet.oledb.4.0 data provider
ms data reports
i dont have the faintest idea of how to go about doing this...
i will be grateful if someone helps me with this...

Try running PDW and let it make the "dependency file". In there, you should get all the info, you need.

but it creates a huge install setup...and it is giving me errors too:(

Then there must be some error on your App (Just noticed - you're using ADO and DAO at the same time - why?). What are those errors?
Anyway - when you run PDW, it asks you what would you want it to do. Select "Create dependency file". This way, it should produce the file with all dependencies needed in your setup and you'll know then what to include in INNO.

Which SP are you using for VB and what OS (9.x, 2k, NT4, XP,...)
It just might be the matter of SP, if you're using OS above 2k.

Don't bother with msvcrt.dll at all, and instead of trying to include
all those independent data access components, just include

how do i install it on my own system?
i downloaded it and when i try to install it, it says that it is already installed on my system...
but when i do a search, i find a mdac_typ.exe file which is version 2.0...so is it not necessary to have a mdac_typ.exe even when it is installed onto your system???
also when i installed my application, it is failing to add the shortcuts to the start >programs menu

Download mdac_typ.exe 2.5 from www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm
Don't try to distribute 2.0 with your app.
