    Hi,
    I have a vb.net application which dials another computer and send message to it with the help of cdrvlibnet.dll . I want to deploy this in another computer. I tried following steps.
    1. Added a new project with type as deployment project
    2. then build the project
    3. took the setup.msi to another machine and installed it.

    Here are my problems.
    1. The icon which created in the desktop and start menu is not running the exe, but pointing to desktop only.


    Can you please point whats the problem here.
    i have followed the steps given in

    Add the setup project to the OLD project, and it will compile (hopefully)

    I have added the setup project to the old project and compiled. But the icons are not displayed correctly in the desktop. Also how to enable the launch option once the installion is over?

    It should be a checkbox. Have you seen CLICK ONCE? It's an option

    In the user desktop option, we have to create the shortcut with an icon. The short cut should be to the primary output to the application folder.
    Thank you all for the help
