Re: Selecting prerequisites in setup project. Vis studio 2005

I just tried experimenting.
I checked dotnet in prerequisites and didnt add any files to my setup
project as I found later that the compile finds them from somewhere and
creates a subdirectory called "dotnetfx" to be created at the same place as
my setup file with dotnetfx.exe in there.
I added \dotnetfx\dotnetfx.exe as the InstallUrl property for the setup
When run, I got message that dotnet wasnt installed, but that was it. The
installation stopped and dotnet wasnt installed.
What am i missing to get the installer to run the dotnetfx.exe file?

Hi,

IIRC there is an article in MSDN lib about this. It was for the 1.1

Take a look at this article http://msmvps.com/blogs/haarongonzal...09/772757.aspx
