In your Setup project you have to add the Primary Output of your Project1 and any other files you need (e.g. Icons ,XML Files , resources) into Application Folder and then create a ShortCut of that OutPut into users Desktop Folder.

You will see Project1 & Project2 Dlls in Dependencies part

build the setup project with your information and you are ready to go

TU a lot,
is i need to add the Project2 and Project3 as primary Output?
"The localized resource " is it important to added and what is meaning?
and in case yes, is i need to added for each one ("Project1 Project2 Project3")

No because Project1 already has referenced Project2 and Project3 so they will be automatically added as Project1's Primary output.

yes add the localized resources also to the Application Folder, its for localization e.g another languages of forms.

TU a lot,
 but you don't answer me concerning  "localized resources" is just for  the "Project3" or also Project1 and Project2

No only for Project3 because it is the main project as you said,
and two others are just class libraries as i assume.

ok TU a lot,

also the project2 and project3 involve each one a crystal report and when i install the program on a stand alone PC i get this error:
"Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms, Version=10.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral"

then i went to assembly and i added the CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.dll
then i get another error:
"Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Shared, Version=10.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral"
then i added the dll,
then i get another error related to crystal report

in prerequisites part in the bootstrapper you have to add the CrystallReport installer package or the Merge Module.
