I am preparing setup of my Visual Studio 2005 winform application using built in setup and deployment project available in Visual Studio 2005 itself.

It prepares different files for my setup such as setup.exe, setup.msi and other resource files. I want to combine those files into one single file mainly called as Setup.exe so that user can download software from my website. This file would extract the setup original files into temporary location on user's machine, installs the application and then delete those temporary files from that location.

Do we have any tool available in MSDN subscription for this purpose or from where can I get such type of tool

What you need is called ClickOnce. But the correct forum to post your question is the ClickOnce and Setup & Deployment Projects forum:

it is not a product you can download, it is a technology. Read more about ClickOnce from the link I have specified. There are also a couple of books I could recommend:

I am not sure about what page you are referring to as far as I know you can copy paste the contents but if you unedit it you should not claim it as your own.
