Maybe Im missing something really easy, but I cant get an object to install. I just upgraded from Professional 7. In 7 all you had to do was add an object to the project and it installed. With X I have the .Net Framework object and the MSDE 2000 object added to my InstallScript project. When I run the setup all that happens is the setups for these objects get copied to the destination computer. How do make these install onto the destination computer rather than just copy themselves.

Thanks for your time,

Brent

I tried adding the MSDE 2000 and .NET Framework 1.1 Objects to a new InstallShield X InstallScript project and could not reproduce the behavoir you describe. Both objects got installed. Can you provide any additional info to reproduce the problem including:
1.Version of Operating System
2. If this is a new project or an upgraded project?
3. Do the objects appear in Add/Remove Programs after the setup is run?
4. Did the setup ask for a reboot?
