Can I use the setup launcher without the Prerequisite Windows Installer 3.1 (x86).prq

Hello,

can I use the setup launcher without the Prerequisite Windows Installer 3.1 (x86).prq. I try to change the default path from  the Prerequisite Windows Installer 3.1 (x86).prq to our project path but in this case we got an error. With other prq's we havn't this problem, for example: The "InstallShield\2019\SetupPrerequisites\Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable Package (x64).prq" we move it to our project folder and delete it in the default folder.

Thanks for help.

What I know is, that since Windows 7 Windows Installer (5.0) is part of the operating system. So it is not necessary to redistribute.
