If you've added your word file to your solution, then in the properties of the file you can choose "Copy if newer" for "Copy to output directory". Usually this is set to "Do not copy", so it won't appear in your published folder.

I think you can do this.
I am using same...
so i hope this work for you

make a single instant application
Copy the word file to the new folder.
also on completion of your project. copy all the files store in the debug folder and paste to that new folder...
So that the word file and your project file will be in same directory.

now to the form1 add button name it as: Open Word File
code to open it:
proces.start(My.Application.Info.DirectoryPath & "\wordfile.doc")

I just give you tip as you can do this too.
else go as per your choice.

You are using the publish option and i never use it but i am using the advanced installer which can help us to create the setup.exe file

Advanced Installer can add the VB Project (almost all Visual studio project + java project + etc) and also having the activation serial input too
For more details as for advanced installer, you can contact me.
