    Look into the Visual Studio Web Deployment projects. This type of project creates a MSI installer which the client can start and walk through the steps.

    Alternatively, publish your website to your file system, and zip it up and supply it to your client, and supply a deployment guide which shows them how to set up IIS.

     Hello,

     

    exe in web project is not possible, Instead you try with deployment of Web project which is provided in Visual Studio itself.

    Using that option you could easily install your application to client System. 

     

    Think this will help for you..

    You cannot make an .exe of a web application.  In general, you deploy web applications to a web server, not a client machine (unless it's a client machine that has a web server such as IIS).
