  • Hi Luca,

    I tried this but on the target machine I get an error stating that:

    "Unable to install or run the application. The application requires that assembly SharpDX.DXGI Version be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first."

    Is there a way to include the SharpDX required dlls in the application?


  • Sorry, 


    re-read your article and it worked fine!

  • Question for you.  Is ClickOnce a good installer for most applications?  I am using the Install shield that comes with VS.  I don't need a lot of the features.


    Now the install shield does allow me to create the default directories, data directories, and a disclaimer statement.

  • PS.  I modified the setup file as you suggested AFTER I sent you the code.
