    Hi nishcom

    1) Have you built release of your project??
    then only it'll be compatible with other machines..

    2) Do you mean creating set up by installation package??
    VB has one option for that but it's not so impressive..
    Rather go for any iss compiler..(one i know is inno setup compiler)

    I hope it helped...

    You can build installers for your project either by using open source tools like
    - Wix
    or by using licensed tools like
    - Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
    - InstallShield

    Refer some of the below links for creating installers using above tools:
    1. Wix

    I have used Wix and Visual Studio 2005. Wix is free and its good, so i recommend to use Wix.
