    It depends.
    If you are not using anything special the exe will do.
    If you use an extra dll then u should include that dll also.
    But in general a small setup installation would be a good practice.

    Don't think so.
    Xml is probably needed when you have created creator comments on functions.
    Edit.Also if you have some folders created (p.e. i usually have a folder "resources" and i put files there) or a database file or something else then you need those folders to.That's why i've said it's better to use the setup program.Also if you plan to use application.setting then i don't know how you will handle the application.exe.config file for per-user based...

    Hmm.
    I can't be sure cuz i'm on asp.net for a while and in there i just copy paste everything ().
    But i think you do an add file or add reference from the installer bar and you add what you want.
    Try it and if you have problem post them.
    Hey gotta leave
