  • Hi Ahansari,

    Is your application ASP.NET project, Winform project or others?

    There are different ways to deploy one application like Windows Installer deployment, ClickOnce deployment and so on.

    Windows Installer deployment:
    The traditional Windows Installer deployment technology, in which you create and distribute installer packages to users, and the user runs a Setup file to install the application.
    See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2kt85ked(VS.80).aspx

    ClickOnce deployment:
    ClickOnce deployment allows you to publish Windows-based applications to a Web server or network file share for simplified installation.
    See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/t71a733d(VS.80).aspx

    For more information on deploying Applications and Components in VS2005, please check: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/wtzawcsz(VS.80).aspx

    BTW, This forum is for the support of .NET Framework installation.
    If your issue is related to ASP.NET deployment, I think that the best consulting place should ASP.NET Forum. This will make answer searching in the forum easier and be beneficial to other community members as well.

    If it is not related to ASP.NET, you can try posting your issue on Visual Basic General forum since it is related to VB.NET.

    Thank you for your understanding.
