Including MSDE in Windows package, containing C# app

P: n/a
Hi,

I am trying to create a windows installer package, that will install:
- .NET framework
- MSDE
- My app..

Can anyone offer some advice, or point me in the right direction.

How would the package know if .NET framework is already installed, or if
MSDE is already installed.

Any advice appreciated

Thanks

Paul,
There is a deployment tool kit for MSDE.

If you use windows installer included with visual studio. It will
automatically add
an install dependency for the .net framework for a c# program.
