Default including .chm in deployment setup.exe

I have a working vb.net application that I can build and run. I included a .chm help file.
The problem is this, I could see it coming.
In my application I set the help provider HelpNamespace to the path for my .chm file.
That is fine on my test machine, I have when I build
.exe
.chm
and a aplication.exe.config file that has inside it
add key="HelpProvider1.HelpNamespace" value=c:\etc...\xxxx.chm

Unfortunately, when I try to create a deployment setup.exe file it will do an install but when I try to run the program it fails with
"Additional information: The key 'HelpProvider1.HelpNamespace' does not exist in the appSettings configuration section."
This makes sense because the setup does not create a config file which is where the HelpNamespace path exists.

So my question is how do I make a deployment setup for an vb.net application that has a helpProvider pointing at a .chm file??
or
How do I include the .chm in my deployment and the executable can find it?

Thank you.
