Office 2007 / 2010 PIA - setup prerequisite

Hi

I'm trying to include the Office 2007 / 2010 PIA in my basic msi project as setup prerequisite.
My only problem is how to detect (using the conditions tab in the prq file) if any of the office 2007 / 2010 products is installed.

Microsoft Office 2007 PIA.prq is included in InstallShield 2011 but it's condition doesn't check if office is installed.
( I know that the PIA check for office by itself but I want to avoid getting an error when installing PIA without office )

Thanks.

You could set a condition of the type "A registry key does or does not exist"
For example
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0
represents office 2007
Or if you want to be more specific you could set a condition of the type "A registry entry has a specified value", and check for specific values of keys of office 2007 or 2010.

Hope this helps.

Eladef, we want to do the same thing and I would like to know how you have made out on this?

Also since IS 2011 only has the Microsoft Office 2007 PIA.prq, where did you get the one for 2010? Would you be able to supply the one you have or let me know where you found the 2010 one?

Thanks,
