Items shown in square brackets, [ ], (other than the headings), need to be replaced by the names used for your particular package.

The [Tasks] section sets up the options to create Desktop and QuickLaunch icons and the [Icons] section allows you to use your own icon from the 'graphics' folder. In the absence of this, the project icon, (if any), will be used. The comments in the Icons section are the text that will be displayed below the icons, i.e. the project name.

The [Files] section starts with the VB files. It's recommended that you don't use your installed files but set up a separate set, here in a 'VB6_files' folder, which, in my case, is three levels up from the project folder.

The next group of files are the project dependencies which, as I start with the VB6 "Package and Deployment Wizard", can be picked up from the package 'Support' folder created by the wizard.

Also listed but commented out, are the files you need to use VBScript commands.

Finally, you come to the actual package files; the project.exe file and, in my case, a 'graphics' folder and its contents and usually a 'Help' folder and its contents and sub-folders specified by the "recursesubdir" flag.

The template can be downloaded as a text file, vb6_template.txt.
