  • Hi gvbas,

    Thank you for your post.

    Based on your description, it looks like that you want to install other software as prerequisite during the installation of your main application, right?

    For your concern, you can add your own (custom) prerequisite to your setup project. You can apply Bootstrapper Manifest Generator to do the work.
    For more detail information, please refer to: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/Add_Custom_Prerequisite.aspx

    BTW, this forum is for the support of .NET Framework installation. If the above suggestion doesn't work, for deployment concern, you could post your thread on ClickOnce and Setup & Deployment Projects forum. You will get more useful help there.

    Hope this helps!

    Best regards,

  • Hi gvbas,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Bootstrapper Manifest Generator is one third party tool. Thus, it is not supported here.

    Please check the link that I posted above. There is a section named "Comments and Discussions".

    For your concern, I think that you can open a new discussion there. More experts on Bootstrapper Manifest Generator will provide you more useful help.

    Hope this helps!
