Choosing the Type of Setup Package

After you have chosen Package on Package and Deployment Wizard’s opening screen, you will see the Package Type screen, as shown in Figure 21.3.

The Package Type screen offers you two or three choices, depending on the type of project that you are packaging:

  • Standard Setup Package. This option creates CAB files (cabinet files, the standard archive file type that Microsoft uses for distribution) and all the other files necessary to install your application with a standard Windows setup (running SETUP.EXE).

  • Internet Package. This option creates CAB files and other files necessary to install your package as a download over the Internet or intranet (not available for standard EXE projects).

  • Dependency File. This option creates a single DEP file that can be used to show your project’s dependencies, or the other files that your project needs to run correctly on a computer.
