thanks for responding to my query, what you said is correct and I know it, but my issue is different, our application is already delivered to customer.Now I can not create new package in the form of HotFix by removing the VC redist prerequisites. In future releases I can remove vc redist perquisites.
In current release when customer installs my application, by default it pops up a window by saying that VC2012 needs to be installed, My question is that, is there any way to skip vc redist prerequisite install part. At least if there is any silent install argument I can tell to my customer that use silent install for application installation without VC. I am looking for this kind of solution to skip VC redistri prerequisites installation.
hope I explained you in better way, sorry for confusing question in my first attempt.
all your help is greatly appreciable.

Prerequisites are installed by setup.exe. So if you skip setup.exe and launch the .msi directly, there won't be any prerequisites.

Yes you are right Stefan, thanks for the reply. I used "myAppSetup.exe /a" to extract the contents and then installed my application without prerequisites(VC preresuisites).
