Deployment vb issue

When I build the deployment project for an application everything works.
However, the two files instmsia.exe and instmsiw.exe do not appear with the
setup files. I may be installing this on machines that will require them. Can
someone please let me know how to rectify this. thanks in advance.

In the setup project's properties dialog, select "Windows Installer
Bootstrapper" in the "Bootstrapper:" combobox.

That is already the option I have listed. The help came up with this
statement for the Bootstrapper option:

Note: For deployment projects that include a .NET Framework launch
condition, the bootstrapper setting has no effect. because the .NET Framework
installer already includes the bootstrapper. The bootstrapper files
(Instmsia.exe and instmsiw.exe) will not be copied to the build directory.

I checked in the launch conditions box and .net framwork is listed. Does
this mean that the files (instmsia.exe and instmsiw.exe) are contained within
my setup.exe because of this condition? Thanks
