Is it posible to package MSDE with VB .net so that its
part of the installation?
If so, is there documentation somewhere?

What about packaging the .net framework with the
application as well?

Thanks

Those are great but there got to be some more detailed versions that
show how to use it with visual studio .net in particular. Those you
referenced are for more general application right? Theres nothing more
direct step by step direction for VB .net?

Not in the current shipping versions of Visual Studio. You either have to
build your own Bootstrapper (i.e. batch file) that will first install MSDE,
then run your app's installation .MSI, or include these merge modules,
which seem to be a bit complex to work with.
