Predefined Prerequisites

In this page you can select predefined prerequisites to be included in your package. You can also set global prerequisite options for the EXE bootstrapper.

Predefined Prerequisites

In the predefined prerequisites list you can simply check the prerequisites you want to include in your package. After they are added in the prerequisites tree control, you can select each prerequisite to modify its settings.

Global Prerequisite Options

ImportantThese options affect only the EXE setup file and prerequisites included in your package.

Download/extraction folder

Specify the default download or extract folder for prerequisite files. Right-click into this field to insert a reference to a default Windows folder or to Windows Installer properties. This field can also contain environment variables.

Do not remove prerequisite files

This option prevents the removal of extracted and downloaded prerequisites. It's useful if you want to allow the end-user to repair or modify the prerequisites software installed by your package.

Check predefined launch conditions before searching for prerequisites

If this option is enabled, the predefined launch conditions that are specified in Software Launch Conditions Tab page will be checked by the EXE setup before the prerequisites are launched. If at least one launch condition is not met, the installation is stopped.

NoteCustom launch conditions are ignored by the bootstrapper. They are evaluated only when the MSI installation starts.

Hide already installed prerequisites

If this option is checked, already installed prerequisites will not be displayed in the list. Instead, only the missing prerequisites will be shown and selected for install.
