I have a web application(for LAN) with sql database and crystal reports, I know about publishing website, But I want to know Web Setup Project so that I have no problem for installing it on client side local machine.

I didn't want to install many software like .net framework, sql server, crystal report viewer, window installer and also about manually creating virtual directory and its permission.

So that I want to know about web setup project.

Please give me any artical link which have pictorial presentation.
