Creating setup file using VS2010?

I am creating a setup file using the VS2010.
I am using the Publish function, Clickonce install.
I have VS C# window app.

When I created today, I didn't see the Setup .exe file. (there is .exe it the application file folder)
I used to see the Setup.exe with AppName.application.

Do you know why I am not seeing the Setup.exe any more?

MyAppName <= top publish folder
Application files folder
I see rest of files including the .exe

I used to see Setup.exe under MyAppName.

    Oh, I meant to say it used to create Setup.exe.

    I don't see the Setup.exe when I publish it.

    It should create the new setup.exe in the specified path in publish folder textbox. Have you also set Installation URL?

    I would suggest try restarting visual studio and move all old publish files to some other place. That might help.

    Yes, installation url was set and restarted it and recreated it.
    It is not creating the setup file.
    It is weird.

    I just went with a Setup project to create it but why would Publish not create the set up file?
