Enclosed is a partial game collection. What I need is a program that I run that creates a setup program so when someone runs it even if they do not have Visual Basic on their computer, it will install all the necessary files so the game package would work. Cannot use the deployment that came with Visual Basic because the setup is not just one program but a bunch of programs into one. Should be set up where a person chooses all the programs to include. If it needs to know what dlls and ocxs are needed, then that's fine also. Then after selecting all the programs and files, then it will create a file called setup.exe. Should have an option of whether when ran from a CD that it would autorun or not. If checked, then if the [url removed, login to view] is burned on a CD and someone puts the CD into the drive, it would autorun (installing the programs). One choice when creating the set up would be to choose the name that would show up and also choosing where to put the files. Default should be C:\games
If the directory is not there, then create the directory when running the setup.exe. There are other games that would be included with the setup but its not there. However, if I later add additional programs, I should be able to add other programs to the setup. Would like it so whatever was done, it saves the results so I can just update it later (in cases where I add other programs or make changes to existing programs). In this case, all the dlls and ocxs enclosed is what would be used currently. The database file needs to be included as well. After running, the programs must then work (the same as it would if they had Visual Basic on their computers). The program can be done in any language. However, let me know first what language would be used for this. Let me know if you have any questions.
