I don't think you can do that. What are you trying to accomplish? Why do you want to have your setup broken up into multiple projects? What version of Visual Studio are you using?

I'm using VS 2010. I created a main project which needs to access other projects, which I can do by executing their .exe files from the main project.  I wanted to inlcude then in one installation package instead of installing each project separately.
