Use a custom mbapreq.wxl to replace the stock help message.

Subject: [wix-users] /help command with custom bootstrapper

Hey all,

I've built a custom wix bootstrapper, and show a custom 'help' window if the user passes "/help" to the installer. The problem is that if .NET isn't installed on the machine the user will get the .NET pre-req help window (not my product's help window). Is there a way to show a basic MessageBox() window before the .NET package displays its window?
