Hotfix: Duplicate entries for .Net Framework 4.0 packages

Symptoms:

The .Net Framework 4.0 packages are duplicated in launch conditions under Requirements view after installing the InstallShield Expansion Pack for Visual Studio 2010

Cause:

This problem is due to a bug in the Expansion pack. It updates
DOTNETVERSION40CLIENT.ini
DOTNETVERSION40FULL.ini
and makes backup copies of the originals. The .bak files are resulting in duplicate entries.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install and Activate InstallShield Limited Edition.
2. Install the InstallShield Expansion Pack for Visual Studio 2010
3. Create an InstallShield Limited Edition Project.
4. Go to Requirements view.
5. Duplicate entries are found for .Net Framework 4.0 packages

Fix:

Locate the folder: Searches (By default, this directory is “C:\Program Files\InstallShield\2010LE\Searches") and delete the .bak files

DOTNETVERSION40CLIENT.ini.bak

DOTNETVERSION40FULL.ini.bak
