Deployment and publish, the old way

I have this application that I program in VS2005.  Now I'm ready to deploy and I discover that it's not like VB6 that I'm use to.

What I want is to have the old Windows installer way of publish.  I try the Clickone way and I'm not satisfy of not having the installation made in the Program Files Folder.  I try creating a new solution with the VS template "Setup wizard" and I import the application inside this solution and still that is not what I want.

I want a file call "setup.exe" or and MSI file that install my (allready program) application to the Program Files Folder.  I do need the uninstall feature and a normal Shortcut in the StartMenu.  I do need for my application to add and set new registry key/value and that will be nice if the setup.exe can take care of that to.

Thanks for your help
