I have two applications(exe files) to be installed. One is developed in visual basic 2010 express(sqlserver) and another one is developed in MsAccess database.

So here my requirement is those above two exe files has to run as a single setup file to install.

So how can i add these  two exe files to publish as  a single setup file and how can i get the updates for both the applications?

the only packager with Express is ClickOnce.

check http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vbgeneral/thread/ac6db89a-67c1-4c67-86f6-f405431d6cdd and replace the .mdf of the step 4 with your access database

As far as I know this is not feasible.
Both SQL express and Access are prerequisites of your installer, VS setup installer and Click once  do not support conditional logic for prerequisites.
thus you need two installers to keep separate prerequisites.

No with prerequisites, if you need this funticionality, you need to go for a product like Installaware. (It gives you the ability to custom the msi script) or WIX

How. Can you post your solution steps?
I have a similar issue and it would help to have these steps handy- so far I am using Installaware for this but if there is a VS solution...
