Publish, but not ClickOnce

P: n/a
Hi,

my application uses some configuration files. Since I could not find a way
to have VS 2005 include these files into the generated Setup program once I
publish the ClickOnce application (not even when I have these external
config files on my resources tab) I'm going to publish my application as a
"normal" program. This way it is easier for the user to find the application
installation path (like c:\program files\the program name\config)

How can I achieve this?

Is there a way to have the final setup program also install (just copy) any
config files to the destination machine?

Thank you very much in advance,
Kurt

You can just 'build' the program to \bin\release in the project directory,
and then use something like the Nullsoft installer (nsis.sourceforge.net) to
create your config file.

Hope this works.

I tried the suggested installer software and it seems to work just fine.
Thanks for the advice!
