Default SQLEXPRESS deployment with Windows application

I have written a simple Windows application using SQLEXPRESS. When I try to publish that application, it came back with a warning that says 'Item Windows Installer 3.1 is required by SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, but was not included.'. How do I include Windows Installer 3.1 with Visual Studio 2005?

Are you using Visual Studio to create your installer? I think there is a way to tell the installer to include additional packages. You'll need to look at the documentation but I am pretty sure it is doable. The Windows Installer is automatically installed via the Windows Update but not everyone does that...
