Well...

The thing you need to know is about VisualStudio and/or .NET framework. Pity I know very little about them both, so I'm afraid I cannot help you much.

.NET application can be in various forms and first you need to know which form has your app and what files it consists of.

Check these articles:

http://www.codeguru.com/Csharp/.NET/net_general/visualstudionetadd-ins/article.php/c7219/

They can give a common idea what to dig inside your Release folder and how to determine file set of your application. To make sure you know fileset right, try to manually copy these files to some computer (preferably without Developer Studio installed) and run your application there. If it runs OK, then you know your files right.

Our Installer then will be able to help you to automate this "copy files" process.
