    Hi Boopathi,

    I'm not sure what do you mean by organisation here. However, Visual Studio installer is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2012. You must used some third party tools to create a msi package. Please give more details about this tools, so I can redirect to the correct forum.

  • You can create the exe file by building the application.

    So I'm not clear what you're asking. Are you asking for advice about how to install the application? If so, what kind of application is it? Is it a web application, a windows forms application, a WPF application, a Silverlight application, a Windows service?

  • The problem is that after compilation and linking I cannot find bin folder or exe , there are debug and release folders and no exe inside them
