Hi,
I was following the MSDN walthru tutorial -
ms-help://MS.VSCC/MS.MSDNQTR.2003JUL.1033/vsintro7/html/vxwlkwalkthroughcreatingcustomaction.htm

but I am not being able to compile the project - keeps giving me this error -

The output file from the windows application is Not Found. Followed by an
'Interface not registered'.

Any idea what is wrong ?

Have you built the windows app you are trying to package? I presume you have
specified you want to add the 'primary content from project x' and it is
unable to find the exe file.

Does the windows app run OK with no build errors?

Yes, I checked, the app is running fine.

Tell me this - in the tutorial, the windows application that is added is the
one we are trying to install, right ? Or is it only for handling the custom
installation ?

In the example, you are starting with a blank solution. The install action
is for the windows application you create in the first section, as is the
custom action in the installer.

Do I take it you have created your own windows project you want to deploy
and you want to get the installer to open a webpage like in the example? If
so, you have to create the 'OpenWeb' project at the beginning of the example
and add the primary output from both your application and the 'OpenWeb'
project to the installer. Then, for the custom action set it to the primary
output from OpenWeb, not your application.
