Default Need help for VB .Net deployment options


First of all, if this is a cross-posting then my apologies for the same.
I am using VB 2008 (.Net 3.5)

In my application there are basically 3 funtionalities, Update, Uninstall and About

When I install the application, I want 3 different program shortcuts to be created under Start-->Program Files-->My Application
It would then look like

Start-->Program Files-->My Application--> Update
                                                                            --> Uninstall
                                                                            --> About

How can I achieve this? Do I need to have 3 separate EXEs? Currently I have 3 different subs in my module with these names, do I need to create 3 different modules? Is there anything to do with assemblies etc? Do I need to create 3 different projects and build 3 different EXEs and use them in my SetUp project? I looked at .Net Deployment options read about adding folers, output files etc, however could not resolve this.

I am new to .Net and VB 2008.

Thakns in advance,
PN-MH, India
