Hello. I am able to start setup.exe but when I click PrerequisiteInstaller.exe I have an error "This tool does not support the current operating system." Is it possible to check if necessary prerequisites are installed before actual setup?

    So, basically we do not have a tool to check if prerequisites are correctly installed.
