See more: VS2005 msi setup
I have 3 projects in my VS 2005 single solution (1 Web Project, 2 other C# projects). I create the setup for deploying the website using Setup Project Templates available in Setup and Deployment category. Now I have .sql file needed for the website. Currently I need to run this setup to install the website firstly. Secondly I need to execute scripts that is the .sql file in the MS SQL Server 2008 where the website DB is already available. My requirement now is to give this .sql file and website as a single setup package? Is there any possibility of bundling this package and the SQL scripts into a MSI package? Can some one please help me in this regard.

Very brief advice: Don't get into it. Why? I would highly recommend to require the user to use their version of SQL Server, based on your user's license. Make is a prerequisite for your product.

Hi Sergey,
 
I dont find your answer relevant to my question.
I actually have .sql scripts and my .net code is dependent on these queries to make the website work.
When this is the case, my requirement is I need to install website and these sql scripts by single click on Setup i.e bundling code setup and .sql scripts as single MSI package?
