reference files

  • 15 years ago

    How can I include in my project and in the end in my application output folder all files that are necessery to run my application.

    Is there a way I can run application on platform that doesn't have installed .net framework?

    Or how can I see all files that my application use so I can manualy copy them?

    logically u need the .net framework to run a .net application, but most people have it so this shouldnt be too big of an issue, its been a windows auto update for a long time now.

    and what kind of file?  if its a dll just adding it as a reference will copy it to the build directory.  theres no way to "see" a list of other files your program references (such as opening a text file somewhere in your code).  right click your project and click add existing item to add the files.
