How to add 3rd Party( Microsoft) msi to the list of Redistributables

I am using IS 2018 Express and I would like to add a Microsoft MSI to my build. 
How can I add this MSI to my build?

You can do using Prerequisite Editor which is available in the Premier and Professional editions of InstallShield.

It is not available in the Express edition of InstallShield.

See if below article helps if you are looking for alternative approach

Thank you for the reply and clarification.  I was anticipating you were going to say something to that effect.  I will most likely have to continue handing out the MSI's separate from my build.

Thank you again.

One other way is to build your own custom bootstrapper setup which takes care of installing multiple third party msi's along with your primary installation.

Do you have or know any documentation that will explain how to create such a build? I am not familiar with that process. On the surface it sounds like something that might work for me.
