Hi

I'm experiencing a funny thing.

Creating an application with an setup projext attached to it. I have ajusted
the prerequisites to be loaded from the application directory.

When bulding the setup project, after building the app. project, i get a
result i'm not quite understanding...

In debug mode, i get an msi and an exe + several folders containing the
prerequisites to installe from.

In release mode, i get only the msi and the exe. No folders with any
prerequisites.

How come there is a difference here. Does the release not need the
prerequisites folders for the install??

There is only a slight difference in size of both the msi and the exe.
Actually the msi is a few bytes smaller in the release and the exe is som
kb's bigger in the release..

Can anyone explain this to me??

TIA

Debug and release are separate configurations with separate prerequisite
settings. Change your configuration to "Release" and set the prerequisites
again.
