How to Register an Application Extension with an Installer.

I have an application extension class that implements IExtension.  The COM registration functions are in the class.  When I build my project in Visual Studio then check the component category manager I see the extension name in the MxExtensions category.

I have a Setup project that builds an installer for my main project.  The extension class is in a different DLL referenced in the Primary output project.  The installer works fine but the extension does not get registered.  I tried adding the Extension to the component category manager on the target machine but it does not work. 

I have no idea where to go with this problem and would love some guidance.  Thanks!
