How to create One Setup Executable?

P: n/a
Hello,
I am developing an application using VB .NET 2003 I will sell it in a Web
Store.
I understand not every Windows machine necessarily have the .NET runtime 1.1
installed... So I used the Setup Bootstrap in my VisualInstaller project...
the problem is, I need just one Setup file
The Visual Installer creates an MSI file plus some other support files...
including the setup.exe... I can not count on the target machine to already
have the correct version of the MSI installer, nor the .NEt runtime 1.1
Is there a way under the MS Studio Installer project to create one setup
executable that would extract on the user's machine and installed. I know
microsoft rollout applications that way... for example the XP Powertoys...
How can I do this under MS Studio .NET 2003? if I can't, what other tools
should I use.

Please help,

Thanks
Sam

I am using InnoSetup (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php) it is not MSI
based installer but it is really good and free. It has a really wide user
base and any questions on the newsgroup are usually answered within hours.
I'm very happy with it.
