i have visual studio 2010

i have created a .net project C#.net which produces a simple DLL...Its on .net framework 3.5

Now, i created a setup project to install that DLL on users machine. It creates two files - setup.exe and an msi file


Is it OK to rename that setup.exe or the installation on users machines will fail?
Thanks a lot..
