Packaging an Access applicaiton using Visual Studio

Hi all

Please excuse me if this seems silly....

I've been using the VB6 Package & Deployment Wizard to create a 'CD' version
of an Access application based on FE/BE and a rather large number of support
files (> 800 JPG images)

The PDW installation is currently taking over 90 mins so I'm looking to
Visual Studio as a more up to date technology to improve on this.

I need to include the Access Runtime as part of the packaging process.
What's the best way to do this in Visual Studio?

Thanks in anticipation
