Deploying custom Cryptographic Key at installation time?

I have currently created a Cryptographic key using the Enterprise Library 4.1 configuration tool so that I can implement cryptography within my application.  However, the problem that I am having is that I would like the cryptographic key that is created to be configurable at installation time so that my customers can choose the cryptographic key they would like to use for their installed application in order to ensure that it is secure and unique to their environment. 


Based on everything I have seen and read so far, I have not been able to find an example/sample of how to accomplish this through an Installation Package such as InstallShield.


Does anyone have any ideas on how to deploy tor customers under this installation scenario?

I haven't actually used InstallShield.   Were you able to get an idea on the other thread you posted on?
