  • Hi ASIT,

    Thanks for the post.

    The easiest way is to create a "WEB SETUP PROJECT" in Visual Studio 2010.

    Go to File-->New Project --> Other Project Types --> Setup and Deployment --> Visual Studio Installer .

    There you will see 5 project templates:

    1. Setup Project
    2. WEB SETUP Project
    3. Merge Module Project
    4. SETUP Wizard
    5. CAB Project

    Out of these select "WEB SETUP PROJECT" in which you can easily add files to your installer.

    You can also use "SETUP WIZARD" to create the installer with the help of a wizard.

    Please give your feedback whether this answer helped you or not.

    Happy Coding!!!
