Try to use WiX. This is simplest way to create custom msi installation packets. Use 3rd version, that version is not stable - but it works and i not found issues there.

http://wix.sourceforge.net/

Also look at these totorial: http://www.tramontana.co.hu/wix/.

To learn how to use WiX - you can download SharpDevelop 2.0 and create WiX setup project.

Good luck.

AkisC,
I do have a setup project.  I see the "File System on Target Machine" which includes the Application Folder, User's desktop, User's program menu and User's Startup Folder.  In the User's program menu, the license agreement.rtf is included.  I'm not sure where you're talking about in regards to the user interface and right click on - start....  etc.  Can you please instruct further?  Thanks!
