Package the control in a Merge Module (.msm) and add the .msm file to a Windows Installer project.

  Package the control into a cabinet project (.cab) and add the .cab file to a Windows Installer project.
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  Create a separate directory for the control and then package it in a Windows Installer project along with the rest of the project files.
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  Package the control as a Web setup project and create a link to that project from the Windows Installer project.
