I want to deploy an .net application which is dependent on  VC++ runtime library 2005,
In order to install VC++ runtime library 2005, it requires windows installer 3.1
I would like to know how to detect on the target machine whether vc++ runtime library 2005 and windows installer 3.1 is present or not,so that through setup I install this components.
Is there any other way to deploy these VC++ libraries

You can make life a lot easier by packaging and launching http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=32BC1BEE-A3F9-4C13-9C99-220B62A191EE&displaylang=en ("Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)") with your installer. That program will detect the installation status and install the required binaries if they're not present. If the CRT is up to date, it will do nothing and just exit.
