My application is developed in MFC using VS2005. The application requires VC++ Runtime to be installed on the client machine.

How can i add VCredist_X86.exe as a preRequisite.

Thanks in advance.

    Unless you allow some old OS, then this is typically already on the newer systems. Otherwise, just obtain the InstallShield merge module and include it in your project.
