I have developed a web application in vb.net. I want the application to be used at clients machines.I managed to do the setup and on my machine(Windows 7 Ultimate-32bit) it installed and run successfully, however when i try to install on other machines running xp,vista,win 7 professional it doesnt run and install.

What might be the problem? how do you make a setup that would run on both 32bit and 64bit machine.Do i have to make a setup for each processor type? how do i include dependencies in the setup so that users should not be dowloading them. the setup should detect if the dependancy is available or not. if not it should install automatically

If you are concerned with 32/64 bit, then make it 32 bit. 32 bit will work on 64 bit machines, too. Have you looked into InstallShield? That program can allow you to set prerequisites to have the installer download dependencies if it doesn't already exist on the machine.
