I've got a sizable project, with multiple classes, 500+ images, and 20+ text files associated with said project.
I've been publishing my project via right clicking on the
project->properties, and clicking on the publish tab. I've included the text files and images as
The issue is that whenever I install an application, usually it's a simple installer, i.e. you download an installer (one file such as installer.exe), run this file which then takes you through the setup, such as where to install it to, etc. Then the application is installed and that's it.
Well, when publishing my application, I specify an output directory, and I'm left with these files:
- Application files
If I run
setup.exe, I'm able to install the application and run it with no issues. However, not only does it not let me choose where to install it, but I would have to send all 3 of these files to the user. I tried to send just the
setup.exe to a friend and it said they were missing the files required (which I'm assuming is what the
application files and
.application were for).
How would I go about bunching these all into one installer, one that more closely matches how you would install an enterprise application (think of installing chrome, eclipse, photoshop, etc)?
I've love to be able to have one file which is the installer and be able to have users download that.
