I have created a .NET 2.0  WinForms application, which my users will download from my Web site.
I need to be able to create an installation wizard that will do the following:
1 Have users accept or decline the license statement
2 Check for the versions of the .NET framework installed on the client computer
3 Install the required version of the .NET redistributable, which will be included into the installation package
4 Check for any installed versions of MS Sql Server on the client computer
5 Install MS Sql Server Express 2008, which will be included into the product installation
6 Install the main software package

How is this done?
