i have created a simple program
and now its finished a made it exe.
i end up with three folders 1) setup 2) setup.lst 3)a zipped folder
when i run the setup it installs perfect but when i put the 3 files on any other computer it wont install and it flashes up a quick message about update file or something.
can anybody help as this is driving me crazy

I would probably need more info to even guess. If you are using the
P&DW to create the install, you would have a setup.exe, setup.lst and
.cab file. It might help if you could get the exact message that is

to be honest i am not sur ehow to use the p&d properly
when i use the package thats all i did i didnt use deploy i dont even know how to can you help
my program is simple but it uses a wav file which i insert during the package
please tell me more

Did you add the .wav file to the package? Even if you didn't, it is hard
to see how a missing .wav file could stop the install. Without more info
from you it is just impossible to guess.

Your program has a dependency on some library that either needs to be
installed or upgraded. This is a pretty common problem with installs for
win2k/xp computers. Are you using any database functionallity or
ActiveX controls or DirectX or some other reference/component?

i am not sure if my program is using any of the above mentioned
so i have placed the entire program below for your veiwing purposes
Private Declare Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "PlaySoundA" _
(ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) _
Const SND_ASYNC = &H1
Private Sub Cmdclear_Click()
Txtahour.Text = ""
Txtaminute.Text = ""
Private Sub Cmdexit_Click()
Private Sub Cmdsnooze_Click()
Txtaminute.Text = Txtaminute.Text + 10
If Txtaminute.Text >= 60 Then
Txtaminute.Text = Txtaminute.Text - 60
Txtaminute.Text = "0" & Right(Txtaminute.Text, 1)
Txtahour.Text = Txtahour.Text + 1
Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
Lbltime.Caption = Format(Time, "HH:MM:SS")
If Txtahour & ":" & Txtaminute & ":00" = Lbltime.Caption Then
Dim SoundFile As String
SoundFile = "C:\Program Files\Project1\alarm.wav"
PlaySound SoundFile, &O0, &H1
Private Sub Txtahour_Change()
If Len(Txtahour.Text) = 2 Then
Private Sub Txtaminute_Change()
If Len(Txtaminute.Text) = 2 Then

I think you need to attach the setup.lst file from the install package.
This program just seems too simple for that problem.
