Is it possible to designate pre-requisite folder by InstallShield project?

We have a single InstallShield 2015 Professional Edition license and use InstallShield Editor to manage two separate projects (.ism).

Both projects, include Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 Full redistributable. However, the pre-requisite behavior is different in both projects.

To handle this, a separate pre-requisite folder was created. This allows us to have two .NET Framework 4.5.2 pre-requisites with different behavior.

However, InstallShield is configured to show redistributables from both folders (Tools->Options->Prerequisites->All Users).

Is there a way to designate by InstallShield project which pre-requisite folder to use?
