Content files are not including in the windows installer setup project's MSI package RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create MSI package of the .net web application from visual studio 2013. I have added setup project in the solution from the category windows installer. after configuration of setup project and mentioning Primary project output + content files in setup projects output, I am able to generate MSI package and install it on IIS.

    But Compiled TypeScript files which become JavaScript (.JS) files are not included in the MSI package.
    Checked in TypeScript files (.ts) generate .JS files after compilation. I am compiling code using DEVENV.
    This generated .JS files are not coming in the MSI package.

    Could you help me here and suggest me the solution to include compiled content files in the package.
