automatic install speech recognizer in winforms publish?
Posted on 2011-02-19
VB.NET winforms application for Windows XP or above. Publisher Wizard recognized need for Net Framework 4.0 Client Profile, installed it automatically as part of setup on target machine...very cool.
My application also requires MS Speech Recognition 5.1 or later installed on target machine. This was NOT added during setup even though dll's are referenced in my app, and I do not see how to add it as a prerequisite in the Publishing Wizard.
As much as possible, I want my app to be basically install and go....so I hope someone can tell me how to do an automatic install of the recognition engine when the setup determines it is not already there.....
Thanks in advance.
