    Hi All,

    I am using VS2013, created a windows installer project. Now I have a requirement to create a .msi file for the project and install it in the client machine.

    But when I try to add setup and deployment project to current project ,template is not available with create window.

    I downloaded the extension from microsoft site and when I try to install it I am getting an error saying

    " [1040:0CAC][2014-12-12T12:27:56]i000: MUX:  Stop Block: ProfressionalBlock : Microsoft Visual Studio is required, but it is not installed on this computer. Please install it and retry."

    But I installed VS2013 Express and working.

    can some help with the opt solution for this scenario.

    the project I am working is a job scheduler which works for min, hour and day basis in the client machine.

    thanks in advance :)

    Hi Rj,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    " [1040:0CAC][2014-12-12T12:27:56]i000: MUX:  Stop Block: ProfressionalBlock : Microsoft Visual Studio is required, but it is not installed on this computer. Please install it and retry."

    Accoridng to the error message above, it means that you need install Visual Studio 2013 on your side, not Visual Studio 2013 Express.

    You can download Visual Studio from Microsoft official site: http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs.aspx 

    Best regards,

    HI rajesh134,

    Welcome to asp.net forum.

    when I try to add setup and deployment project to current project ,template is not available with create window.

    The Visual Studio Installer Projects Extension provides support for Visual Studio Installer projects in Visual Studio 2013. You can download the extension from the Visual Studio Gallery.

    Further resource: Visual Studio Installer Projects Extension

    If there is any concern, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Best regards,
