When I do that it creates many files rather than a single .exe
And .exe can't be used without other files...
I want to create a single .exe for my application..

plz help...............

if u want to give the setup u have to publish the application. its same in both 2005 and 2008.

what u mean by single exe?
if supporting files and the dll used in ur application are not included in the exe then do u think that exe works?
