Stopping installation for msi

I have a pre-req of .Net in my (EXE) installer and if the pre-req installation fails, I terminate the installation by editting the pre-req settings from the Tools menu.

I also have an MSI installer which doesnt have the pre-reqs. This installer is supposed to be run by the admins who assure their client machines have the neccessary pre-reqs. I still want to terminate the installations for MSI if the pre-reqs are not installed. How can I stop installation for MSI installations in this case?

Perhaps add system searches + launch conditions to see if the prerequisite software is there?

Yes, thanks Robert! Another question along these lines, if the user is not admin, i want to terminate the installation as well. Is there an easy way of this or do I need to create a Custom Action and find that out and evaluate a property and use it in the Launch Conditions? Any tips on figuring out if the user is admin or not?

Thanks.
