I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can add the ini file to the Package & Deployment wizard.
Sorry, you asked for the "procedure".

After you select the project file (and compile it, if necessary), the next screen will list the files to be included in the package.  Click the "Add" button and select your ini file.  You will have to change the file type to "All Files" to be able to see it.

A few screens later in the Wizard, you will be able to select where the ini file will be installed to.  I would suggest that you accept the default and install it to the folder where the executable is to be installed.
