I have an app that has multiple projects outlined as below:

Solution My Project
      DbaseConnection
      MainApp
      ReportsApp
      Utilities

I am attempting to create an installShield app to create a deployment for my .NET app.  I've downloaded the trial version.  I've seen on youtube how to do a simple install with a simple .NET app.  

Is there a linke to youtube or anywhere else that would provide info on how to create an install with my scenario?  I want to make sure that my EXE uses all the functionalities as in my application.

Also, I have an App.Config.  Can the install update values in that file?

InstallShield example.  Do I put all the DLL's from the BIN in there?
InstallShield
Thanks

Depending on several variables, there are two ways you can do it.

1. once you installed Installshield, you may have new project type in your C# project - Installshield setup. Select Solution node in solution explorer, and try to add new project, and see if you have project type Installshield setup. If you do, then it will figure out what files to install, and will create pretty much everything. Then you build it, and you'll have the setup.

2. Or you can create standalone Installshield project, and simply add all the files you find in your /bin folder of the c# project once you have built it.

>   Do I put all the DLL's from the BIN in there?

Most likely yes, if they are required to run your application.

It seems to be working with just adding the dll's from the one project but I'm still having some issues I'm trying to work through.
