Deploying Multiple .NET Tools

Hi,

We are upgrading our tools/commands from VB6 to .NET.  What we are finding is that in VB6 we could just add multiple dll by using the 'Add from file' button on the Customize window in ArcGIS, and all went smoothly. 

But with the .NET dll/tlb file that is generated, that process no longer works.  It seems like we need to create a custom installer for each tool that we have using this process (http://edndoc.esri.com/arcobjects/9.2/NET/0df20605-b457-42d6-b63c-341a3824474a.htm).

Is there a simple way that the user can install multiple projects with just one click??  I don't want to have to create 10 setup.exe files for 10 different tools. 

Any ideas are appreciated.

Thanks!
