Creating a .NET Windows Installer – Part 1 - Adding Files, Project Outputs, and Shortcuts (Page 7 of 14 )
The first step in creating a setup is specifying what files you want to be copied to the target computer, using the File System designer.

You can also add files to a hard-coded path (using the Custom Folder option) or to the directory the user selects for the application (the Application Folder).
