Hi, I'm using vs2005, .net 2 for Windows applicaiton.  I am creating a windows installation package which produce a .msi setup file.  
1.  Can I add a dialog to ask user if they would like  to have a shorcut to the application created on their desktop and based on that how do I have my setup create or not create this desktop shortcut?
2.  Is there a way to launch a notebook to open my readme.txt file after the installation is completed?  I guess I could add a dialog to ask if user would like to open the readme.txt.  But how do I launch the notebook?
Thank you?

I think there is answer for question 2:

What tool you use to build the msi?
