Can't include .NET Framework 2.0 to my build

Hi all

I need to include the .NET Framework 2.0 to my application build.
On the Releases page, I am setting the .Net Framework Location to "Copy from Source Media" and selecting ".NET 2.0"

When I try to build the release, I get the following error:

Error -6247: The .NET Framework redistributable C:\Program Files\Macrovision\IS 2008 Express\Redist\0409\i386\dotnetfx20.exe is not found on the system. To download this file, go to the Build Your Release View, and then select the .NET 2.0 Core Language or .NET 2.0 Language Packs property to download new languages.. To download more .NET redistributables, go to the Tools menu and select the "Redistributable Downloader".

IS seems to be looking for a file named "dotnetfx20.exe" that doesnt exist on my machine. There is a file named "dotnetfx.exe" in the same folder but I'm pretty sure it's for a previous version of .Net. I've tried renaming it to "dotnetfx20.exe" but although the build then works, setup fails with an error message about "... cannot find 1033dotnetredist.exe"

Does anybody out there have the "dotnetfx20.exe" file or know how to fix this issue?

Thanks

Please rename the dotnetfx.exe file back (it should be under 500k, otherwise you have the wrong one and should consider moving it aside and running InstallShield's repair). Then use the Redistributable Downloader from the Tools menu, and download ".NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package" (which unfortunately gets alphabetized in the middle of the language packages).

I have the exact same issue as jaiprakashv while using InstallShield 11 Professional. I expect it to be in the InstallShield Objects/Merge Modules after downloading it, but I can't find it.

I can't speak for IS 11, but in 2008 Express, you need to add the location of your download to the Merge Module Locations via: Tools / Options / Merge Module Options. HTH
