Prerequisite command line arguments not being passed from Setup.exe..

I just installed IS 2020 and was doing a little testing and found an error with a previously functional prerequisite called from the setup.exe.  It's an .exe and in the prerequisite setting ' Specify the command line for the application:' is set to [ProductLanguage].  I've attached an image of the setting.

The prerequisite .exe first grabs the command line arguments array and element 0 is the path to the running .exe, while element 1 should be the product language identifier.  However I can see that there is no element 1, which means the command line argument is no longer making it or being passed from the setup.exe (there is a language selection box displayed at initiation of the setup.exe) to the prerequisite .exe.

Did something change with 2020 in this regard?

I think I figured it out...

After placing [ProductLanguage] in the the silent mode command line parameters, it seemed to pass things in.  Hopefully that solves it.
