Installer - how to configure setup project to automatically install the .NET runtime?

P: n/a

Hiya,
Just a quick question for you - if I create a Setup project for my VB.NET
application, is it possible to configure the setup project to automatically
install the .NET runtime if it isn't present on the target machine? I don't
want to have to "launch" another installer from within my application
installer - I'd rather they were "integrated" into a single installation.

Any ideas?
Cheers

Hi Robin,

This is not possible and I suppose is even prohibited by Microsoft. You
should launch the .NET Framework installation as a separate installation.
