Problem Creating Setup Project

Hi,

I have a windows application, wherein the solution consists of 5 projects.
When I try to create a setup and deployment project for this solution, I'm
somehow unable to add anything in project output group. I tried creating with
a setup wizard, but it just doesn't give me an option to add projects,
although I was able to add files into the setup. Moreover, creating a normal
setup project also did not help.
I tried to add a new project group after creating the project, but it does
not list any projects at all in the drop down list.
Am I missing some step here?

Have tried searching the net, and it shows at various places that I would
get an option to add project outputs within the setup wizard, which I somehow
am not getting.

Any clues?

I was inadvertently trying to create the setup project in a new solution.
Realised in time that a setup for any solution has to be created within the
same solution. Once I did that, I got pretty much all the stuff including the
option for adding project outputs et al.

However, I was just wondering if there is a way by which you can segragate
the exe and exe.config files from getting into the package together. I have
come across just one case where I can add the primary project output to the
setup. And this option adds both the exe as well as the config file.
Any pointers on this one?

Changing the BuildAction?

Sorry, only a guess.
