Best way to install my application's prerequisites??

P: n/a
I need to install a few prerequisites before the installation of my
application. I need these prereqs to install independantly of my
actual application for packaging purposes.. so i can email my app's
installation(and updates) but provide a cd to clients for the needed
prereqs.

I need to install .NET Framework 1.1, Direct X 9, and the managed
portion of Direct X 9.

What would be the best way to do this?

Hi Buzzhack,

One way I've done this is to add LaunchConditions to the Setup project. The
condition can check the registry to see if a certain application is
installed. If not, setup will show the user a Dialog where they can click a
link to find out where to download the file. You can configure the message
and links in this dialog through the properties of the launch condition.
