I used VB 6.0 very much. There is a provison to compile to EXE file then package and deployment wizard make setup.exe
But I learned VB.Net 2005 programming but I couldn't any way to make a setup program or any alternative to sell my project.

Yes it is full version of Visual Studio 2005. Is there not available package and deployment vizard as available in Visual Studio 6.0. How to convert a setup package?

Is it the full version of 2005 or the express version, as the method varies between them?

Go to setup wizard from new project and select the specific project that you want to prepare setup

go to the Project Menu and find your [Project Name ] Properties eg. if your project name is aaa , you can see the aaa Properties .
Click aaa Properties and then you can see your project properties window.
Select the Publish Menu at left side. Now you can publish the Setup file for your project to sell.

You need to install appropriate version of the .net framework along with your application.
