Hi,

I have almost no experience with Windows Installer, so this is probably
an easy question.

I'm deploying a VSTO application. Its primary output consists of an
Excel spreadsheet and a DLL. I created an Installer using Visual Studio
.NET 2005, and I want to create a shortcut to the Excel file on the
user's Desktop.

I can add a shortcut to the project's "primary output", but that creates
a shortcut to the DLL and not the XLS.

When I right-click on the primary output entry in the Application Folder
and choose "Output" both files are listed. I somehow need to choose the
Excel file instead of the DLL. Do you know how to do that?

Thanks,
Aaron
