Are you using VB6? If so,what service pack are you running? Also,you might want to check out Inno setup:

Its a free installer that works well and creates a single file setup.exe

  R u running the Project ?
 First u create an exe of the Project , while creating EXE u can find few more errors unknown to u(if exist)
 check whether that exe is running properly.
Now u try package and deplyoment wizard
