    Question Visual Studio Deployment

    hi Guys,

    i have been having a problem recently, of what is the easiest way to pass on a program that i have written in Visual C++, including it's dependencies, to other people. it is only a small program, which i would like to pass on to friends via CD.

    i have searched the internet for solutions, but it is one of those situations where there are so many different solutions on the internet it is difficult to choose one. for instance i have played around with the depends.exe program, but to no avail, and i keep hearing about manifests which i don't really understand.

    therefore, i was wondering what you guys consider to be the easiest way to pass Visual Studio solutions on to other people. can anyone please help?

    thanks in advance,

    The easiest way that I find of doing it is by either creating an install (might be called setup) project in your solution and adding your project output to it, or use some kind of install creator like wise or installshield. But I guess the downside to that is that you don't necessarily know what it's doing.

    That works for C#; I don't know about Visual C++. Give it a shot anyway.
