Help on Setup and Deployment Projects

Hello,

Can anyone point me to a good link on MSDN that has all the information on
how to create Setup and Deployment projects in VS.Net? I've got the basics
down and have created custom installer classes and they work fine, but I
cannot find any information on the different properties that can be used as
launch conditions or that can be passed into my custom installer classes.

For example, what property gives me the location of the original install
files (i.e. the path to setup.exe)? There has to be a ton of those types of
properties available, but I cannot find them documented anywhere.

Also, can anyone recommend a good book on VS.Net Setup and Deployment
projects?

Cheers,
B

BTW, all of the documentation on these are in the Windows Installer
documentation in the Platform SDK.
