To test the project in Virtual machine, you need to copy the complete disk1 folder or if you created a compressed msi then you can only copy that msi to your VM and then install it .

You need to click on Open Release Folder button , it will open your msi or exe you have build and then you can copy all the files to your VM where you want to install and test it,

If you want to build the files in your own location, then on Release --> Build tab --> Release Location field change it your own value EX: C:\Test, then you build output files will be copied to C:\Test location, 

You can also create compressed setup, if want to have only one single exe file, Go to release -> Build tab --> on Compression build set to Compressed,
