My web site solution contains MSI web setup project that was configured to prompt user for database server name and database name and then overwrite default settings in web.config with user-entered values. In VS 2005, the Primary Output item which is referenced
by the custom action is no longer available since no single web site assembly is produced. How can I fix this, or is there a new way to configure web.config file during installation?

Are you using the new VS 2005 Web Deployment Project support? It provides the ability to generate a single assembly as part of deployment, and the output can be piped into a Web Setup project.
Here is a blog post I did that talks about how to use it, and also shows using it with web setup projects:
Hope this helps,
