R – How to deploy VS2008 express desktop project


i was wondering how could i deploy/make it into an installer for an app which is created using vs 2008 express. i know that the setup and deployment feature is only available via the full version of visual studio right?

So are there any add ons or perhaps additional free/or non-free if it has to come to that which i can use to do this?

or is the best tool for the job is the old visual studio installer from the vs 6.0 days? 🙂


After some googling, i found this link on using click once to deploy vs 2008 express with tutorials in them, i'll check it out, but of course more & better recommendation is always welcomed 🙂

WiX is excellent. Here is a good MSDN article on it too.
