Toupee,
you could use the free Inno setup installer available here http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php
to create your distribution file and create any registry entries, or user directories needed for your application.

spotty

Orcas Express only support click once as well.

Its a intentional design decision for the express product not to provide all the templates for different types of projects and windows installer project template is something you have to buy a copy of the product to get.

Or you can by a 3rd party tool to create windows installer packages such as Wise / Installshield. Both are good and easy to use.
