Hi you can Create setup file through below process

File-> New-> Project-> Other Project Types-> Setup and Deployment -> Setup Project.

Set you Set your Project Name and Click on OK

Click File System On Target Machine -> Add Special Folder->Programs File Folder->Add Folder (Name It)-> Then go to File ->Add -> Existing project ->Select the C# project->After that you can see on solution explorer that solution has been added->Then go to the folder(Name it )->Add -> Project output->Ok.

Then you can see that Primary output has been made. Make two shortcuts of that.
Move those shortcuts that you have made to user desktop and another one to User programs menu.

After doing all this

Click View ->Editor->User Interface .
Then Debug It .

You can find the Folder inside visual studio projects.
