    In earlier versions (prior to Visual Studio 2012) there was a project type called "Setup and Deployment" which was used to create setup for your applications. Similarly, there was also project type called "Web Setup" in Visual Studio 2010 to create setup project for your website. Step by Step Guide to Create a Setup for a Web Application

    But, as far as I know these two types are no more in latest versions of Visual Studio 2013/15/17. Alternatively you may use InstallShield Limited Edition to create a Web Setup for your web application here is a step by step article on Creating Setup for Web Application using Install Shield LE – Cipher Dynamics

    Hi Prasad Kabbur,

    In addition to kaushalparik27's suggestions, you can use the Publish Wizard to publish a ClickOnce Application in VS 2015 and VS 2017.

    The following link shows how to use do this, you can take this as reference.

    Hi kabbur.prasad,

    user is not techno savvy he is layman he dont know IIS ,FTP ,database nothing.  he will going to click just next ,next,next like Microsoft

    I'm afraid that there isn't such a way to auto install the IIS, FTP , database with just click next, next.

    Both IIS and Database needs to install them manually. If you are using local database, you don't need to install database. But local database has performance limits.

    Best Regards,

    I suggest to provide a perfect installation guide in this case. However; up to some extent, you may try to use Batch file and Powershell scripts to perform some tasks for example, New-WebVirtualDirectory with Powershell script
