Forget to tell that my VS studio is a 2010 express edition, that's why I'm having a hard time to convert my web app to .MSI installer.

For Windows Installer deployment like setup project template, it is not shipped with Visual Studio Express products.To apply this feature, we should upgrade Express products to
Visual Studio 2010 Professional Edition or above edition.And then you should add the deployed file into windows installer(in vs 2010 ultimate,new file->project->Setup and
Deployment Projects->add).However, referring to express products, we can publish our application.
