Hi guys,

I normally package a dotnet installer and my software installer for my client and he normally has to install each seperately. Is there a way i can add dotnet installer to my project installer... I do not want to use third party apps like install shield wizard...

You help will be highly appreciated

Per Microsoft kb, you can't roll it into the application installer package using the native deployment package tools; you can however, use the Setup.exe Bootstrap installer to install the .Net Framework and then kick off your app installer.

BE AWARE!!! That article appears to apply to NETFX 1.0 & 1.1 only. For NETFX 4, try this link on MSDN. There is a section in that guide for chaining your application setup directly from the NETFX setup.
