I'm working on a program running only on Windows XP and using Windows Media Player 10.
I added a prerequisite to check if WMP10 is installed and download it if not.
My problem is that the OS verification is NOT done before launching the prerequisiste.
For example: my setup will launch the download of WMP10 even if you run it on Windows 2000.

Can someone help me please?

Thanks !

You should be able to place an OS condition on all your prerequisites such that they will not install on an unsupported OS. At that point, if there are no installable prerequisites, it will jump right into your installer, which will perform the OS check and inform the user.
