hi All,
I am new to installshield...
I have a .msi that has dependency to .NET Framework 3.5.
So I have made .msi as primary package and dotnetfx.exe as dependency package.
Now I want to set detection condition for this .exe to check whether this framework is already installed on target system or not?
Can anyone help me regarding this?

This is what InstallSuite was designed for, this is the best tool for the job. Simply create a Suite Project, go to the pacakges section and R-click. Make a new windows installer pacakge, put in the information on the general section and the operation section (this only applies to the .msi), then go back to the pacakges section, R-Click then click on Import Pre-requisit .prq, you should be able to browse the .prq files, if you don't see it there than create one by using the Prerequisites editor. You will set the detection and elegibility options under the general section.
