I'm developing an app with Visual Studio Express and SQL Server Compact - I want to create a simple installation CD containing all pre-requisite components (.NET framework 3.5, SQL Server Compact etc), in case the end user has no internet access. There is no Setup project in VS Express - does anyone know how to do this simply.

Sorry for the stupid question, Click Once deployment seems to be what is supported, but I cannot find a way to get Click Once to work without the need for the end user to have an internet connection. (I have spent 4 hours trying to get this to work, trawling internet etc.)

Hi,

Try InnoSetup... It's free easy and very well documented.

There are plenty of resources available:

That's because Click-Once deployment is a web-based deployment strategy.
