  • Hi Brajesh,

    What do you mean by "it doesn't run?"  Does it give an error message?  If so, what does it say?

    What are the steps you followed to make the Windows Installer package?

    You should be able to create a working windows installer package using a Setup and Deployment project in Visual Studio, but if it's not working for you, you need to give us more information about what you are doing and how it fails if we are to have any hope of helping you.

    Also, please note that Setup and Deployment projects are not available in the Express edition of Visual C++.  If you are not using the Express edition, you should post in the "Visual C++ General" forum instead -- you'll get better help there, since more people who use this feature would read that board.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Rajesh,

    I think, you have to install VC++ Runtime Redistribution Kit on the client machine.
