If you select Windows Forms Application from the Visual Studio project types menu, the output will automatically be an .exe file:

You can deploy these project types with a Visual Studio Setup project:
 
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/19x10e5c%28v=vs.100%29.aspx[^]
 
This will deploy the .exe project for you if you add the Primary Output of the .exe project to the setup. For attaching a database you might have to go down the road of Custom Install Actions in the setup project:

I would consider either using SMO to attach the database, or running an osql command from the command line:
