I have a Windows Forms application that uses a MS Access 2007 database.  I've created the installer using Visual Studio.  When I install the program on a machine that does not have MS Access, I get the following error:

The Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 provider is not registered on the local machine.

How can I add this as a prerequisite to my installation and have it install if it is not on the machine?
