I am installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express using Installshield and it requires PowerShell as a prerequisite.

I need some help/guide in creating the prq file for PowerShell.

Thanks

It sounds like all you need is to install Powershell:

http://microsoft.com/powershell

You can try V1.0 first.

Yes I do. And I need instructions on how to include it on installshield as a prerequisite.

Have you already tried installing it and re-running the install?  Does it still error out?  It doesn't sound like you need to add a parameter in Powershell for the install for SQL Server 2008 EE.  

Make sure you have the following components installed on your machine:

1. Dot Net framework 3.5 SP1

2. Windows Installer 4.5

3. Windows PowerShell v 1.0

Make sure, you have installed SP3 for Windows XP along with the required updates.

(If XP is what you're running)

Once you install Powershell and the above Pre-requisites, your install should continue with no problem.

Don't know anything about installshield packing, etc. But these people have this thread about the same topic: http://community.flexerasoftware.com/showthread.php?t=186270

Might start you off in the right direction.

Dale,

I have no problem installing powershell/sql server manually. What I need is to automatically install powershell if it was not already installed before installing sql server.

i.e. I want to create a single installer which includes installing sql server along with its prerequisites (including powershell) and my application in a single installer.


Learnctx,

We had the same problem but the op didn't really get his answer in that thread. I am just beginning to learn installshield so I don't really know that much about it yet.

Premier edition of Installshield has Prerequisite Editor as menu item. It allows that. More at http://kb.flexerasoftware.com/doc/Helpnet/InstallShield2011/HelpLib.htm#SetupPrereqEditor.htm
