Error on adding new Packages to the VS Prerequisites Dialog Box


  • I was trying to add some prerequisites 3rd party tools in Setup project prerequisites dialog box. In Bootstrapper, I write Product.xml and Package.xml manifest files. and added to the right location "~\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\~"
    but  still new entry is not showing in dotnet project Prerequisites box (Properties\Prerequisites) 

    Here is my sample Product.xml file. Please help me to find out where I am doing wrong.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Product xmlns="" ProductCode="Custom.Bootstrapper.Package.RemoteDesktop">

    <DependsOnProduct Code="Microsoft.Net.Framework.2.0" />

    <PackageFile Name="Setup.RemoteDesktopManager."/>


    <RegistryCheck Property="IsRemoteDesktopInstalled" Key="HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RemoteDesktopManager" />


    <Command PackageFile="Setup.RemoteDesktopManager." Arguments="">

    Compare="ValueGreaterThan" Value="0"/>
    <FailIf Property="AdminUser"
    Compare="ValueNotEqualTo" Value="True"

    <ExitCode Value="0" Result="Success"/>
    <ExitCode Value="1641" Result="SuccessReboot"/>
    <ExitCode Value="3010" Result="SuccessReboot"/>
    <DefaultExitCode Result="Fail" String="GeneralFailure"/>

    Thanks in Advance :)
