Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I have done this.
but still my application not working , when I click on my application then" myapp has stopped working. window is checking for solution of this problem."
this error occurred
I think this is because I have add one folder for images and using it in my project and by just copying into bin\ debug folder every time( by post-build utility) and accessing from there.
but when I am creating setup I have to add this folder somewhere by which my application should get this path.
I am little bit confused how could I resolved this problem?

any solution?

Happy Programming!!

hi,

I followed following steps-
added one setup and deployment project into my app
1. added my project output into that project.(right click -> add->project output)
2. change the application folder DefaultLocationpath property to [ProgramFilesFolder]myapp\Uploader\ ( I want to install my exe in c\myproject\Uploader\")
3. then to put application in start menu - select user Program menu and in right pan added shortcut by right click-> add shortkut and in that added project output from application folder

just build it and install it.


I got this error when I installed my application and I can see it in start menu when I clicked on this I got error.


Happy Programming!!
