How to create a prerequisities with VS2013 and Installshield LE ?

Hello,

I want to create a new installer with an existing application. I use VS2013 with Installshield LE.

I've any problem with the requirments : I would like to do a software requirment with another programm (driver), than I use a registry key inside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\programToTest

And then I test a value : DisplayVersion

I use "registry entry" choice.

But it isn't working. All time it don't detect this key, present or not present, I have all time my error message.

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Hello,

Thanks for reply. No key created under Wow6432Node, I do the test with this key as explained in my first message : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\programToTest

Is it wrong ?

Thank you.

In that case, is the installer you are creating a 32bit install or a 64bit install?
I do not believe a 32bit install will see that location.

Thanks for your answer.

The program I would install with installshield is 32 bits.
The install is for CD-Rom, no choice for 32 or 64 bits. Can I change it ?
