I have a simple C# program which I want to create a self extract installer with all the libraries inside in order to give it to some people without having to share other stuff or have to connect in order to obtain the libraries.

I am using VS 2005 and 2008 where is that option?

Thanks

Right click on your solution, select Add/New Project. In the dialog box scroll down the treeview on the left and click on "Other Project Types". Select "Setup and Deployment". Sounds like this is not a web app so you select a Setup project. If you want it to have an install wizard select "Setup Wizard". Either one is pretty automatic for a simple program and will include your libraries if they are part of your solution.
