The VS Installer is an MS freebie for installing applications on machines that have the Windows Installer. It's a cheap alternative to costly commercial installers although it lacks some of their more extraneous bells and whistles.
Do a search on MSDN for 'VS installer' to get the gen on it.
On installation it creates a Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 program group. Click on Add/Remove Programs: it should be listed as Microsoft Visual Studio Installer. All this assumes Win2K/XP which comes with the Windows Installer. If not you'll have to install it also on WinNT/xx.
I'm looking for this on a Windows 2000 Pro system.
My Add/Remove Programs control panel doesn't list an entry for VS Installer. I reviewed all the components for Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition and couldn't find a VS Installer component. I looked especially hard at the Enterprise Tools and Tools components and their subcomponents, but I couldn't find it.
I'm missing something somewhere. Do you know what it is?
