vb.net deployment package

I need to deploy a service that will run on a production server. I am not
certain what category of deployment directions that I should follow from the
MSDN site.
The service is written is Visual Basic.NET version 1.1. The service is
scheduled to run once an hour. The service is suppose to take data from a sql
server database (where the information was obtained from users via a web
page) and send the data to a HP mainframe by using xml and soap messages.
I am following the directions for deploying a web soltion from the following
url:http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...ebSolution.asp.
When I get to the part that says:To create a deployment project

On the File menu, point to Add Project, and then choose New Project.
In the Add New Project dialog box, select Setup and Deployment Projects in
the Project Type pane, and then choose Web Setup Project in the Templates
pane. In the Name box, type WebDeploy.
Click OK to close the dialog box.
The project is added to Solution Explorer, and the File System Editor opens.
In the Properties window, select the ProductName property and type WebApp1"

I can not find the "In the Properties window, select the ProductName
property and type WebApp1". I am not certain where the Properties window,
to select the ProductName property is. I can not find the ProductName
property?

What kind of a deployment package do I need to setup? Also can you give me
the url and/or directions on how to complete this kind of deployment?

Thanks!

Fromthis, I would suggest that your project is a "Windows" Service,
not a "Web" Service.

You'll need to add a Project Installer to your project (with the
Service Designer open, there's menu options and Designer "verbs"
provided to do this). Configure the installer to use the right user
account and such like. Rebuild the project.

Take your executable (and supporting components, of course) to
your target host and run the Framework utility "InstallUtil" on it.

InstallUtil <ServiceExeFileName>

That will install it as a Service, which you can then configure and
start, as required.

There's probably a "nice" way of packaging it up, but this works
well enough for me.

HTH,
