I added the Microsoft .net Framework 2.0 sp1 prerequisite to my project. It doesn't seem to detect that .net 2.0 sp1 is installed because lets the user know that they must install and when they do it fails. I know that it's already installed.  have a new .prq file that I downloaded from Acresso that is supposed to solve this problem but it's not working.

Change the .prq file to check the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v2.0.50727\SP

This value should be a "1"

Hopefully this is what you need.

Appearently they know about this issue http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?t=182956&highlight=IOC-000074405 I attached the .prq file that they have as a fix. It doesn't work for me and I haven't heard back from them. Any more help would be greatly appreciated.

There is not point in waiting for them to fix it...it's very easy fix.  Just edit the .prq with the "prequisite editor".

Thanks for your help nhenny.
I have the express edition which doesn't have the editor. The .prq file that I attached is supposed to fix the problem. Can you attach the prq file that will work? I know it's just text but and the value is supposed to be less than 1. Using the prerequsite editor will make the file look like what? If I knew I would just edit the text file.

Sorry, I don't have access to InstallShield over the weekend.  However, I believe all you need to do is change the "Condition Type"=2...looks like it is currently a 32 is the file they gave you.  Give that a try...if it doesn't work I can get the answer to you on Monday.

Thanks.
