Creating setup project for MS visual studio 2010 As Follow.

Application Folder: primary output.exe, DLL1, DLL2,Icon.ico,Help.txt
User Desktop: added shortcut of primary output.exe
Users Program Menu: added shortcut of primary output.exe

Setup is created successfully but not able to add folders like project1, project2...etc

I have installed setup1 on "c:\ Setup1" in setup1 if I keep all the input files and run the application from start shortcut menu then output is generated in Setup1 folder.

but if I created folder Project1 and keep all input files in that folder and try to run the project then no output is generated

I want to create folders in setup1 project OR ON "C: Drive " like Project1,Project2,Project3...etc (want to create folder for new test data.)

"C:\ Setup1 : input1,input2,Project output.exe, related DLL's ...if put all input files in Setup1 folder then it is working.
If I have created new folder and keep all input files there and try to run then it doesn't work.

Thank you.

Setup project type and template is deprecated in later version of Visual Studio, so, why not switching to something better and more legitimate? I always advise open-source WiX, which is really compliant with MSBuild standard (unlike "Setup"!) and provides excellent integration with Visual Studio.

Yes. Visual Studio Setup Project is deprecated. Use VDProj to WiX Converter to convert your setup project to WiX.
