to create setup exe of my application i need some prerequisites to be installed

When I am trying to create setup exe of my application I need some prerequisites like crystal report runtime .msi to be installed at client side, how can I do it?
I am trying to make a setup for my program by using InstallShield 2013 LE, this application consists of Crystal report, So when I install my application setup.exe, I require Crystal report runtime also to be installed at a same time, and also on installing my setup.exe, the set up files should get saved in c drive automatically by default. please guide me in this issue.

and Feature option is disabled.

You can add prerequisites in the Redistributables view. If the specific prerequisite is not there, you will need to obtain the .prq file from the vendor and add it to C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2013LE\SetupPrerequisites. Once you refresh the view or restart InstallShield, it should appear in that view.
To change the default install location, you can change the INSTALLDIR property in the General Information view.
The Features functionality is not available in the limited edition.
