    Sql Server 2008 R2 SP1 missing in SetupPrerequisite

    Hello,

    I'm evaluating the trial version of InstallShield 2012 Spring Premier.
    I need to insert Sql Server 2008 R2 SP1 as a prerequisite but I've seen that is missing the in the setup prerequisites list, what can I do?

    You can define your own InstallShield prerequisite for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1. For details, see Defining InstallShield Prerequisites.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    I stil need you help because I have little time to evaluate Installshied.
    I must create a setup for a commercial product and I will decide within two days which software to buy.

    The installation must allow me to:
    - set .Net framework 4.0 and SQL server 2008 as prerequisites (if not installed on the computer of the customer must be installed)
    - sql script can be executed to create and populate a database
    - insert file .exe of my program and its dll.

    What is the best way to do this things with InstallShield? Which type of project should I create(Basic Msi, Project Wizard)? There are tutorials that allow me to quickly understand the way to go?
