Error Upon Installing: Cannot download the application. The applicatin is missing required files...

Hello,

I am building my first .Net Application. The first couple of Publish
and Installs I did went fine. But after a couple of builds, I get a
modal dialogue box error every time upon trying to install using the
setup.exe. Title is "Cannot Start Application" and it says:

====================
Cannot download the application. The application is missing required
files. Contact application vendor for assistance.
====================

I'm publishing this to my own computer. Full admin permissions if that
matters.

Clicking "Details..." brings up a log file with:


====================

COMPONENT STORE TRANSACTION DETAILS
No transaction information is available.

====================
So it appears that C:/Software/GalleryScreenshots/
GalleryScreenShots_1_0_0_17/GalleryScreenShots.exe.config.deploy is
the offending file. Is there some setting I need to enable to get this
file to publish?

And like I said, this was working at some point.

Any help here would be appreciated.

Chris T.
