setup project and framework?

P: n/a
Hello.

I want to embed the framework setup with my project setup. Does any body
know where in the (Visual Studio .net) Setup-Project I can set the option to
install the framework first?

Thank you
Lore

It is not possible to embed the .Net Framework installation within a setup project. You can add a Launch Condition
on the .Net Framework from the Launch Conditions editor, which will cause the installation of the MSI to fail if the .Net
Framework is not available on the user's machine.

Alternatively, you can have a separate program install the .Net Framework prior to launching the msi. This is
commonly known as "bootstrapping", and Microsoft has published at least 2 tools to help enable this. One tool
can be integrated into Visual Studio 2003:

The other is a standalone that tells how you can modify their program to work well with VS.Net setup projects:

There are versions of this last one available for either 1.0 or 1.1 versions of the .Net Framework.
