    I have to change in my setup project. After this I want to recompile it. But there are 2 types of error I face.

    1) relating "Hresult = 800000a"  & the file is .vdproj

    2) relating "can't update the dependency" & the file is .vdproj

    I have only 1 .vdproj file. 

    I have tried hotfix but can't solve the problem.  Need your help. Thanks.

    Hi jjayesh

    Setup projects are used to create Windows Installer (.msi) files, which are used to distribute your application for installation on another computer or Web server.

    You can follow the steps below to create or add a setup project, 

    To create a new setup project

    1. On the File menu, point to Add, then click New Project.

    2. In the resulting Add New Project dialog box, in the Project Types pane, open the Other Project Types node, open Setup and Deployment Projects, and select Visual Studio Installer.

    3. In the Templates pane, choose Setup Project for a standard setup, or Web Setup Project for a Web application.

    To add an existing setup project to a solution

    1. On the File menu, point to Add, then click Existing Project.

    2. In the resulting Add Existing Project dialog box, browse to the location of the setup project and click Open.

    Here are some reference for you,



    Best regards
