    Best way to install/deploy application built with VS6 and VB6?

    We at work still have old apps made in VB6 and VS6.

    I am working with VS 2005 and VS 2010 which have ClickOnce feature, so I push new version on the main disk accessible by other computers on the network.
    This means, when new version is available, the users of the application take it to their computer once they start it since it auto updates itself.

    I was wondering what is the best way to install/deploy old VB6/VS6 application to users computers? Is there similar feature like ClickOnce in VS6 or I should go and install on each computer separately?

    MS Deployment Wizard for VB6?
    Install Shield maybe?
    Or some other? Can I deploy on network disk(NAS)?

    What dependencies (if any) do they have that need to be deployed, or is it just the .exe itself that is needed?

    Open the VBP file in Notepad, and copy all lines that begin with Object= or Reference= and post them here.

    The wizard that comes with VB6 is fairly simple and works for most projects. Install shield is quite a bit more complicated but has a lot of power and options.
    The main thing is that you include and register where needed any support files required by the program.
