deployment

I'm using visual studio express and am reading through the help to figure
out how to deploy this app I have created. I want to deploy it by way of a
windows installer, not a clickonce. It says to add a deployment project to
the solution. a) how do I add a new project to this solution and b) more
importantly I don't have setup and deployment as a project template
anywhere. Is this a limitation on the express edition or am I just being
retarded and not seeing something that's right in front of me?
Regards,
Nick

Unfortunately you are neither blind nor retarded - I just checked the
express i've got at home and it isn't there - obviously a limitation -
they've omitted it to make way for really useful stuff like "Movie
Collection Starter Kit" ;-)

All I can say is that it is really simple if you have the pro editions.

Yup, It is missing in the express editions. Why not download the 90 day
trial version of the VS2005 Professional edition from
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/products/trial/

Hope that helps.
