I am trying to install SQL Server Express as a prerequisite along with my application.

When creating/editing a prerequisite file (prq), is there a way to add a folder? I would like to include the extracted version (which includes folders) of the installer instead of the single file installer.

No. Prerequisite assumes that it's in very fixed wrapping, expected by the setup.exe generated by installshield. If you want something "custom", you have to program that into the installation as nested installation, or write your own setup.exe.

I will try it out when I have the time. For now, I will just go with the single exe installer.

Thanks
