Distributing the application to the user

You've completed your project and you're ready to release it to the end users. How do you do this?

It depends entirely on the project and who will be using it. You could simply hand over a CD, scribble a few instructions, and be on your way. Or you may install the application yourself. Another option is to develop an official setup program that automatically installs your application. You can write such a program in a traditional programming language, purchase a generic setup program, or write your own setup program in VBA.

You also need to consider the issue of providing support for your application In other words, who gets the phone call if the user encounters a problem? If you aren't prepared to handle routine questions, identify someone who is. In some cases, you may specify that the developer handles only highly technical problems or bug-related issues.
