  • Hi Mailzyok,

    Thank you for your post.

    You can use BMG (Bootstrapper Manifest Generator) to make .NET Framework 1.1 as a custom Bootstrapper for both MSI and ClickOnce. 
    Here is the helpful tutorial about how to apply BMG:
    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/Add_Custom_Prerequisite.aspx

    After you have created your own bootstrapper, you can set it as prerequisite of your MSI.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Mailzyok,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you want to deploy the installers for the prerequisites to a different location like local directory, please click Download prerequisites from the following location and enter a local path, URL, or file-share location.
    (You must make sure that the installers for the prerequisites have been copied to the specified location with a subfolder for each prerequisite.)

    I found an article that shows how to install Prerequisites with a ClickOnce Application: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8st7th1x.aspx for your better understanding.

    Hope this helps! If you have any doubt, please feel free to let me know.

  • Hi Yichun Chen,

    Thanks. We have tried it. It works to some extent. But we didn't find a way to let customer download from the vendor site for the prerequisite. What we have done is put, for example, .Net 1.1 msi in local directory. Any comments?

    Thanks,
