I have developed a windows application using visual and i used as language.

Now i want to deploy it as windows installer on other machines.

Using setup project i don't have many deployment options.

What other option i can use so after installation completes i want to see my program

in start menu and desktop.

Also while installing i want to ask user if he want's to have an icon of my app on
his desktop.

Can you suggest a good article book or site thanks.

    The setup project is the way to go, you can add lot of custom options to the setup project to capture user inputs.
