How to add JAVA Runtime Enviornment prerequesite
Posted 20 September 2011 - 06:28
Can anyone please help me to add JAVA Runtime Environment prerequisite in installshield 2011 basic MSI project.

Then please post a more specific question at which step you have problems using the Prerequisite editor.

In the Prerequisite editor, I have added the prq file for JRE. However, when I save the Prerequisite editor, I am not able to see the Prerequisite added in the installation files tab of Project Assistant.

Thanks for your response.
I tried to do what you have suggested. I have created the system search, then I have created a Error Custom action, but I am not able to figure out in the custom action how to map the search with the custom action.
I am sorry, if I ask you silly question, I am just new to installshield, even new to setup design technology.

as condition for the custom action.
But sorry, I made this more complicated than necessary. In System Search assitiant you can select the option to use the result in an Install Condition. That's all you need (no custom action needed).

Thanks for your reply.
What you have suggested regarding that I found one article: http://www.installat...tall-condition/
I used the same steps which are mentioned in the article, still it is not working fine, my installer always throws the error no matters system has that particular software or not.
For your clarification my inputs to the wizard are as follows:
On "What do you want to find?" page. I have selected "Registry entry" from the list and click Next.
On the "How do you want to look for it?" page, select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE for the Registry Root, enter SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.6 for the Registry Key
On the "What do you want to do with the value?" page, enter WSSVERSION for the property name, and click "Store the value in the property and use the property in an Install Condition". Then click Finish.
For the Condition, I have enter WSSVERSION>="1.6"
Am I doing something wrong? because I got error prompt from my installer if the JRE is still in the system with the same version
