How is a ".msi" file created in Visual Studio? Is there some type of setting to create an msi file? I am working with a solution in Visual Studio and it has many projects in it. One of the projects is supposed to create an ".msi" file. It is not getting created though. Is there a special setting to create a ".msi" file? I know that it is an installation file, I just don't know how to create it in the Visual studio project? If I do a full build on the project, the .msi file is not getting created.
