Dear Krishna,
For your required project add setup project to the solution from the File -> New Project -> Setup and Deployment.

Add the required reference and exe file with the setup project. And make the setup project as a startup project. Now build it and get the setup.

- The setup will create in bin folder of the setup project
- Normally for external database, we use web.config file for connectionstring declaration. The web.config file need to add as like reference file setup project. So after installing the setup, you will get web.config file also, From the web.config file you can connect to the external db.
