Build MSI setup to install VC++ 2017 as prerequisite using redistributables

Jump to solution
I have generated an MSI setup for a .NET project by created a Basic MSI project in InstallShield 2014 professional. Added redistributables to install VC++ 2017 as a prerequisite using tools >> Prerequisite Editor option. But we are getting the below error while generating an MSI build.
 
ISDEV : error -7067: Your project contains InstallShield prerequisites. A Setup.exe setup launcher is required if you are building a release that includes InstallShield prerequisites. Change your release settings to build Setup.exe, or remove the prerequisites from your project.
Not getting this problem while generating an exe build. Is it possible to achieve the same feature in MSI build? Please help me to resolve this problem for MSI setup.
 
Thanks

Hi @sathees_ramasa,

Setup.exe  launcher is required to install the prerequisite before installing the actual msi. See the below KB article for more information in this error.

Even though the setup.exe is selected, it is an MSI build only. Only the setup.exe having the intelligence to install the prerequisite before installing the actual msi installer.
