After I click "FINISH" on the second window of the New Setup Project Wizard I get this error. I've used the default file name, which in this case is AlydarBHOSetup(0). I get the same result if I choose a file name, such as "AlydarSetup".

Details are below.

I will try walking through the Manual process for creating SETUP now. I'll post those results when they hit an error or succeed.

The IE-AddIn project is at:

There is another, referenced project in:

Additional info:

I created the SETUP Project manually following the guide. It build successfully, giving me a SETUP.EXE and SETUP.MSI.

However, this SETUP is failing to register the add-in. I'll open this as a new topic to facilitate those who might search for this issue later.

Ira, do you have any third party add-ins installed in Visual Studio (e.g. ReSharper)?
