I have made a exe program (simple biorythms) with Visual Basic 6

 

It is an EXE file that needs an OCX file installed in the same directory to work - MSCOMCT2.OCX (maybe this file needs registering before it can be used)

 

I need an install program so that other people can download it on their machines like you would any other program - maybe even put an icon on the desktop

 

Can anyone help !?

 

Thanks

Thanks anyway, but I found this recently....

 

Good Old Google came up with Actual Installer

It was so simple to create an installer utility called Setup.exe with the program I wrote bundled with the OCX file.....
