Which installer are you using? I've been using WiX, which creates .msi 
files from XML descriptions. As with most software, it trades ease of 
use for power. It provides raw access to the system installer instead of 
a pretty GUI for very simple install scenarios.


  .msi files are databases with tables declaring where things go. The 
tables may contain binary blobs with embedded DLLs to take special 
actions beyond the ability of Windows' built-in installer. You can view 
and edit an MSI database using the Orca utility included with Visual 
Studio. Look for the orca.msi file after you install Visual Studio. On 
my system with multiple VS versions I find the installer here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\Bin\Orca.Msi
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\bin\x86\Orca-x86_en-us.msi
