Windows Installer version needed on clients

I am doing some testing with an Eval version of Installsheild Developer 7.  I created a simple test package and added the package to the default Group policy on my Windows 2000 Server.  When I click on the icon to install the package on the client (Windows 2000 Pro w/ Service Pack 2)  I get an error that a newer version of the service pack needs to be installed.  If I install Windows Installer 2.02 to the client, the install will work without errors.  

It just seems odd to me that I can not create a package with Installshield Developer that will work with a Windows 2000 sp2 client - as is.

Is there a way to set up my install package to also support the older version of Windows Installer on the client.  (I noticed the version on a Windows 2000 pro machine with SP2 is 1.1)

Yers you can change ISD to create installs for MSI 1.1 instead of 2.0. There's an article in the InstallShield knowledge base that describes how.
