I need to deploy my application using setup. I worked some what in setup project avaiable in 2008 like web setup and windows application setup. Now i have some customized scenario. So please read the following scenario and give a good suggestions and
steps to do that..
My main application is Web application. When my setup started install this web application with and then continue to database setup. After successfull, setup continue like optional compents setup like our msdn setup. Here we have more windows services
to install. Some windows services are mandatoru and some are optional like extra feature to the user. I think i show all the services with checkbox so the optional services can select by the user. After confirm each service will install one by one. The setup
finished after all the services installed..
Please guid me which is best to way to creat deploment project like this...
Some of my doubts..
1. I created setup msi for each windows services by adding service project as custom action and this setup work successfully.. How can i continusly install all these services one by one from mail setup?
2. I have nearly 10 windoes services. Visul studio not have a interface with these much checkboxes. So how to cusotmize interface to add more checkboxes?
If service setup is like addon to the main setup i am very happy because i can install services only with out main web application

I would suggest you use WIX for your main installer. If i am not wrong WIX has a user interface for feature selection, which features need to be installed.
