I am creating Setup Project for my WPF windows application that uses office solutions. (requires office tools,PIAs)
1) Can any one tell me how to check whether the Office is Installed on target machine or not. And if not not how to instruct that to user.
2) If office is installed already how to check for the correct version of PIA to install and how to include that in my set up project.
I am using Click Once technology for publishing my application (VS 2008). In Prerequisites, I selected Microsoft Office 2007 PIA
and it is getting included in my deployment package also but not able to install my application if targeted machine has Office 2003 Install. It shows error that particular version need to be there in GAC.
