[wix-users] .NET Framework 4.6.2

It is not wix setup.exe.
I have bootstrapper code that has several screens ( WPF screens) and the msi is part of it ..finally producing Enerprise_Setup.exe( our product setup).  I get exception as soon I launch this setup on a machine where .NET is not installed.

I want to install .NET (which is packaged  along with msi )... if .NET framework is not present on the machine.

Wix setup.exe apps don't require the .Net 4.6.2 framework already be present

Can you share your bootstrapper code fragment that checks for the framework version?

I have custom bootstrapper for my product installation. I do have the wix code for checking .NET Framework and installing.  Since the bootstrapper itself  requires .NET framework , it throws exception as soon as I  launch the set exe.

Any ideas on how to install .net framework before showing  the first screen of bootstrapper?
