  • Hi aakashagarwal86,

    I suggest that you can use a setup project in Visual Studio 2005 to create a setup project for your application.

    Then open the Prerequisites Dialog Box of the setup project by open the property page and click “Prerequisites”, select .net framework, change it as Download prerequisites from the same location as my application – this specifies that the prerequisite components are installed from the same location as the application. This copies all the prerequisite packages to the publish location. For this option to work, the prerequisite packages must be on the development computer.

    Hope this helps!
