Default Issue building a Setup project in vs2005

I have a solution that has a windows application project and setup project in it. When i build this solution in debug mode it runs fine, because my setup project is not set to run in this case. however, when i try to build the solution in Release mode, a microsoft installer application launches and tries to install microsoft sql server 2005 tools. it then fails and prompts to insert a disc or browse to location for SqlRun_tools.msi.

Does anybody know what could be causing this to occur? it does not seem to affect the outcome of the build, but is becoming extremely irritating.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Right click on your setup project -> properties -> you can see a Prerequisites button, click it and see whether your setup project has any prerequisites set.

.NET Framework 2.0 was checked.

I unchecked it, and was able to build the solution.
