xx Deployment How-To
« Thread started on: Sep 10th, 2011, 11:08pm »

I figured I'd write up a little How-To for anyone still confused about how to set up a deployment package of your newly created shiny program.

Step 1. First let's get an installer creator and XN Resource Editor.
Go to http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php and download the latest version, it's free and quite powerful while easy to use.
XN is here: http://www.wilsonc.demon.co.uk/d10resourceeditor.htm and grab the latest version.

Step 2. Prepare your files
Open JB and load up your program, go to the Run menu and click on "Make *.TKN File", choose a folder and filename to put your program in.
Now go to your JB main folder and copy these files into the folder with the tkn file:
jbrun101.exe
VBAS31W.SLL
VGUI31W.SLL
VOFLR31W.SLL
VTHK31W.DLL
VTK1631W.DLL
VTK3231W.DLL
VVM31W.DLL
VVMT31W.DLL

Don't forget to add any extra files your program will use such as images or sounds.

3. Load up XN Resource Editor and click on load, locate jbrun101.exe in the same folder as your TKN file.
In the left hand menu, click on "Icon Group" and keep going deeper until you hit the last one called "32x32 16 colour" and click it. This brings up the icon your program is going to have.
Make your changes and then hit save.

4. Load up Inno Setup, choose wizard and follow the instructions. (Don't forget to add the rest of your files in the wizard!)

Done!

In the output folder you chose in Inno Setup, there will be a single file, that's the installer file you can share with whoever you want to have your program.
