This is a known Visual Studio error. You may have a look at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/nl-NL/winformssetup/thread/9ab9b88b-a57b-4945-9f94-e48a82ad5d8c

We did not found a work around in Visual Studio for this.

Ok, How would i go about distributing my application then?
Do i need to register some DLL's on the client PC for imaging control 3.2 to work?

There is no need to register any DLLs. We use the free Innosetup for our installations.

For distribution please refer to:

Ok that's great all working now, I will try to package later - is there a Merge module available for the imaging control DFG/USB2 Pro ?
