How to build a single .MSI

I am trying to figure out how to get the installshield to package up my install as a single file. I think I have figured out how to do that from previous forum threads, but I can't figure out how to get the SingleImage build to generate.

From other forum posts, it appears that I need to use the "SingleImage" configuration from the configuration menu, but that doesn't work for our setup. We use TFS Build to build our solution and it is setup to build the release configuration of our application.

Is it possible to have the SingleImage build during the release configuration? I would rather change than then to change the other 95 projects to build thier release with the "SingleImage" configuration.

This frustrated me for a while, as it's very non-obvious. You need to open the properties for your solution, select your Release configuration , then go to Configuration Properties->Configuration. In there, you can set the configuration for your InstallShield project to SingleImage.
