I made a setup project for my windows application and it works fine. But the problem is that if I install my application on a computer that I have already installed my application on, it'll install it again without any prompt for repair or remove options.

How can I add repair and remove options for my setup project?

try this:
Please go to the properties of your setup project, by clicking on the setup project and pressing F4 and change the "DetectNewerInstalledVersion" property to true
and  "RemovePreviousVersions" to false
