I created an Install with WiX.  It creates the directory and copies the EXE and all the DLL's where I want it to.  However, when I run the applicatino.EXE it does not run as an APP.  Instead it runs as a background process.  If I copy the code from my .NET Bin directory to the location where the app is created the EXE runs just fine.

Anyone have any ideas?
