I'm using packagefortheweb with visual studio setup. If I select Filename "setup.exe" and "delete file after installation...", packagefortheweb extract the file but delete they before the end of the install. I tried to add \SMS as "Command line" but doesn't work.

I have in this folder the files:
- setup.exe
- xxx.msi
- the folder with DotNetFX
- the folder with CrystalReports10_5

Please, help me

Looks like PckageForTheWeb (PFTW) doesn't detect properly when the Visual Studio installer is finished and therefore deletes the files prematurely. I don't know if there's a workaround.
Since PFTW has been discontinued and is unsuported for a number of years, there won't be a fix. I'd recommend using some other self-extractor packaging tool.
