InstallShield LE cannot Detect Office 2007

Hi,

I am using VS 2012 with the built in InstallShield Spring LE (Limited Edition). I have finished writing the C# code for basically opening and changing data of excel like a model, targeting any CPU, XP OS and up, and Office 2003 and up.

The problem is that after I built the EXE with VS 2012 and after I've put it into the Installsheld LE, using ".NET 4.5 (if not detected, install from the local setup file) & office 2003" perquisite for vista OS and up, also using ".NET 4.0 Client (if not detected, install from the local setup file) & office 2003" perquisite for XP OS, Cause XP OS cannot install .NET 4.5 from what I know.

I realized I have a problem when opening the single image setup in a 64 bit win 7 OS with office 2007. The installer says that it cannot detect office 2003 or even later version. I am quite struggling with this.

Is is that I supposed to add the windows installer as well as VSTO 2010 Runtime, as a prerequisite for the setup. Or did I do something wrong. Or.... The InstallShield not supporting 64 bit installation as lot of others saying, yet, I really firmed that I have chosen any bit of CPU.....

Thank you Guys, really hope you could help me out, cause I am really a green programmer still.

Good Day,

Wilson

Hi Chiranjeevi,

Do you know what specific file you would need in order to further investigate, cause it is like a whole bunch of the visual studio file, and I mean the project is just adding the .NET framework with office perquisite requirement and combine it into a single image installation file.

Please see whether the attached file could help you or not.

And let me know if I could help you anything revolving this issue.

Regards,
Wilson
