This information applies to the following project types:
InstallShield includes InstallShield prerequisites for some versions of the .NET Framework and the .NET Framework language packs. You can include these InstallShield prerequisites in Basic MSI, InstallScript MSI, and Web projects if you want to redistribute these versions of the .NET Framework and the language packs.
Following is a list of the .NET Framework redistributables that are available as InstallShield prerequisites. The associated language pack prerequisites are included if available.
For information on other versions of the .NET Framework redistributables, see.
These InstallShield prerequisite installations are run in silent mode. Therefore, the language in which the .NET Framework installation runs is not an issue.
Since there currently is no way to install Windows Installer 3.x on 64-bit Itanium systems running Windows XP, and since .NET Framework 2.0 and later require Windows Installer 3.x or later, the 64-bit .NET Framework 2.0 prerequisites cannot be installed on 64-bit Itanium systems running Windows XP.
The InstallShield prerequisite installations determine if the corresponding version of the .NET Framework is already installed on the target machine by checking the Install or InstallSuccess value data for a particular HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key. For more details, you can open any InstallShield prerequisite in the InstallShield Prerequisite Editor and note the conditions that are set.
