I have created a win form wizard to install an exe into my windows.I want to do all the things that a windows installer does like registry entry,after installation to the selected path it should appear in add/remove programs and also I shall be able to uninstall the same from add/remove programs .After it has run I wish to get a single executable file and when it runs,guides the user to install the program for which this set up wizard was created.I do not want to use the setup project template of visual studio.Kindly help me achieve the same through c# as I am not sure what entries I should make to achieve all things mentioned above.

Then you are going to have to break down what the installer does and duplicate it. If you need to ask how to do that then you should not attempt it, just use an installer like every other sensible person.

Thanks for reminding what I already knew but I wanna know what registry entries to make in order to do what an installer does ,so if you know then post otherwise do not bother.

Registry entries are only 1 of many things an installer does and most of them are specific to the installer doing the job, there is no such thing as a generic set of entries that are required for a generic installation.

I don't have a problem not bothering!
