Are you asking how to set up a new project in Visual Studio 2012 for a Windows application? Or, are you asking for how to package the Windows application in a setup file?

You have to use ClickOnce applications or InstallShield. Are you familiar with either of those?
joshrduncan2012 at 24-Oct-12 15:31pm
   
If you desire InstallShield, it requires a separate download that you have to acquire from InstallShield's website to integrate with Visual Studio 2012. ClickOnce is right clicking on the project name and clicking Properties. There you will have to go through all of the prompts and publish that program when you are satisfied with the prerequisites.

Solution 1

Get the DOS command line (Either run in start menu or Command Prompt) and run IExpress. Its a simple setup creator with options for license show & accept before install, various commandline options.
 
I use it effectively.
 
I use it with XP, haven't checked if its still there in Win7.

Thanks,It seems to be good,i just try, but i don't know how to use it.

its fairly straight forward, For the bit of software I have I just a standard EULA I found on the net, with notepad filled in my name and app name. Play around with it a bit and you get the hang of it... Same as you now I had to learn it for myself.. I'm sure you can get help if needed when you google IExpress

yes, i am googling.., if i found , i will tell you.

i think,it's something self extracting, it will not be usable like setup,i think,like setting icons for application, or setting prequites,customizing setup window by images etc.

No, Like I said its a simple command line setup packager. If you need extensive istallation info u need to get something else, your original post was a bit vague in this regard.
 
Good luck
