How does one install Smart Card Base Components as part of an Express installation? I cannot find a Merge Module for it, only an EXE. The EXE should only be ran on certain versions of windows. It will actually cause problems if ran on 2K or XP.

I'm beginning to expect I'll have to write a DLL to check OS version then ShellExecute the installation EXE, but if there is a better way, I'd certainly like to know about it.

I'm afraid (as you mentioned) the best way to go would be to create a merge module. If you need to only check the OS version then you can create an Exe custom action, point to this file, and then set it's Condition property so that it launches only on the OS's you want.
