How to create the patch which includes Redistributables

I want to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable with patch. My installer (setup.exe) can install it from Redistributable dialog, but patch (Update.exe) don't show this dialog before PatchWelcome dialog.

Re: How to create the patch which includes Redistributables

Prerequisites are not designed with patching in mind. They run outside of the MSI/MSP process - Prerequisites do not work with patching.

One possible solution would be to deliver patches and prerequisites in a suite project. This is a different concept and is a special wrapper designed to launch any number of packages which can be just about anything - another installer, a patch or a prerequisite. I hope this helps.
