i found the problem why it is not working
it seems that the installer i make is only working on 32-bit operating system
and doesn't work on 64 bit operating system

i search in google and found that setting the(From Build menue in VS2008---> configuration mangaer --->set build to any cpu will solve the problem ,plz advance
