Installing Framework,MDAC and MSDE in setup and deployment project.

Hello all,
I am trying to design my .NET application's setup program that can run Framework,MDAC,MSDE automatically. I found a program called "bootstrap" with the source code that installs framework automatically. Hovewer, I learned that like framework you can not run MDAC in your set up program. I need a program like bootstrap but I could not find it yet.
Is anybody can help me.
For any necessary document or program sending my mail address is

You will have to modify bootstrap app to run MDAC installation before framework install. Thats what we do in our installations. Unfortunately can't post any samples because of NDA and contracts.

I found a new solution for that. I found a code that was written by Visual C++ 6,0. that is like bootsrap. Firstly install WindowsInstaller and MDAC then run to your msi.
I change the msi part of the code. that is now runs the boostrap exe and that is systematically installed in to the system.

Hovewer, now I try to install MSDE automatically. that is also going to be done in the setup and deployment.
Do you have  any advice about this topic.

I have never used MDSE in our apps, so I am not sure. MSDE is a redistributable component, so this installation should be same as MDAC or DotNet components. Check on Windows Update Component CD that ships with IDE. They should have something in there.
