ISSetupPrerequisites folder not found in setup

Hi,
I created an exe using install shield. Added microsoftsqlserver 2012 express sp1(x64) as redistributables. And in properties I set extract from setup.exe. But when I created setup it doesn't contain ISSetupPrerequisites folder . What is the reason behind this??anyone help me.

Re: ISSetupPrerequisites folder not found in setup

if you have set "Extract from Setup.exe" then the pre-requistes will be bundled into the setup.exe wrapper

Re: ISSetupPrerequisites folder not found in setup

But setup will not contain the prerequisits. I try to install the set up in a system.. But it did not ask to install sql.

Re: ISSetupPrerequisites folder not found in setup

I guess it could be due to the conditions on the pre-requistes which is not satisfied on the particular system you been trying.

In any ways, if you want to really verify if "ISSetupPrerequisites" folder is being created then just navigate to:

Media >> Releases >> Setup.exe tab >>and then set "InstallShield Prerequisites Location" to "Copy From Source Media".

Re: ISSetupPrerequisites folder not found in setup

There's lot of things you can look for:

Did the pre-requiste install or it's still in process ... check for it's process and install log if it has any
Can the same prq be installed outside of InstallShield with same set of command line parameters (if any)
