Setup Prerequisites

I upgraded from InstallShield 2009 to InstallShield 2010 last week. I downloaded the 2010 InstallScript files (InstallShield 2010 Prerequisites, InstallShield 2010 Prerequisites for .NET, InstallShield 2010 InstallScript Legacy Objects,InstallShield 2010 InstallScript Objects, etc...)

i upgraded a 2009 MSI/InstallScript project to 2010. I had several prerequisites (MDAC 2.8, Windows Installer 4.5). I would get errors building the installs concerning these files even after I ran the installers for the above files. I opened the .prq files and found the location of the files necessary. They listed the ISProductFolder in the path of the file. I found the correct folders and files under Program Files\InstallShield\2009\SetupPrerequisites. I copied them into Program Files\InstallShield\2010\SetupPrerequisites and the 2010 project finally built successfully.

Does the 2010 installs for the files downloaded from copy files to the 2009 tree? Just asking as someone else may have this problem.

The setups allow you to choose the install location during the install. They run a system search to try to find an existing IS install to pre-populate the install location, but it is possible that it grabbed the wrong folder.
