Hi:
I´m developing an application  that need to b eable to generate a setup with the user especifications.
Something like this:
1-The user select the files to include
2-The app generate the setup file to install that app.

So, i need three things to do:
-First of all i need to copy the files to the setup bin directory (to make it sure...)
-i need to add to the setup program the files relations (to get that all files will be distributed with the setup) and chage the product file.
-To finish i need to generate the setup.

I have the setup "base" created by the Visual Studio but i don´t know how to interact with it

¿Any idea?

Thanks

Use the program, Install Shield, that comes with the Visual Studio app (at least it USED to come with visual studio in prior versions, and is still bundled with other packages like Delphi.

Install Shield is a very capable program that bundles apps for distribution, and does all of what you mention above as a mater of course when installing the application.
