OBJECTIVE

In this lesson, you'll learn how to distribute and install your applications into your user's machine. One way to do this is to simply copy all your files into a disk and instruct your user to copy the files from your disk into the PC. You also have to instruct your user to create a program group for your application in the Program Manager of Windows. Alternatively, you can write a program that does the installation automatically. Such program should let the user choose the drive and directory in which the application should be installed, copy the files from your disk into the selected directory, check whether the user's hard drive has sufficient space, create the program group in the Program Manager of Windows, update the user WIN.INI file and a variety of other tasks.
