Prerequisite evaluation not working as expected.
Hi, I am trying to debug why the built-in prerequisite for visual c++ redistributables 2019 is trying to install and failing despite a later version is already installed on the system. I am using installshield 2020.
The documentation at https://docs.revenera.com/installshield26helplib/helplibrary/UIRefPrereqEditor_Conditions.htm states:
|The target machine meets any of the operating system conditions and all of the other conditions that are listed on the Conditions tab.
So, if I have v14.30.30704.00 and the default version is v14.24.28127.04, I would expect the prerequisite NOT to run. Looking at the setup log, that's not what happens.
Now, I can update the prerequisite, or the .prq file to add the latest version to avoid the problem but that's temporary until Microsoft comes up with a later version, which will always be a problem.
