Hi,

I am creating a package, it contains a service which requires the installation of another package to work properly.

Should I make my package depend on the other package? What should be a best solution in this situation? I think there must lots of similar situations of this.

Thanks,
Peter

Here are a couple suggestions.

1) Add a LaunchCondition that prevents the install from continuing if the required product is not installed.

2) Have a warning message displayed that the dependancy exists and that the service won't work without it. This allows your install to complete, but informs the user of the dependancy.
