Hi,
 
In Visual Studio 2010 Microsoft recommends using InstallShield 2010 Limited Edition.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721500.aspx[^]
 
And here you will find a walk through article detailing how to make an installer.

If you need help the best place for this is the InstallShield community forum:
http://community.flexerasoftware.com/[^]
 
This should help you creating a good and reliable installer.
 
Valery.
