I am new to the list and I'm hoping WiX is the solution to my problem. I
have developed a VSTO Add-in for Word 2016 and 365 using Visual Studio
2017 and C#. What I want to do is distribute a VSTO Add-in for Microsoft
Office 2016 and Office 365 (specifically Word). When I go to publish my
VSTO Add-in for Word (2016 and 365) it requires a the Visual C runtime
from Visual C 2010 be installed first. I'd like to make an MSI to
distribute my VSTO Add-in that will install the Visual C 2010 runtime
before it runs the "published" VSTO installer. I built MSI but not since
dealing with Visual Basic 6. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I tried playing around with the MSM and MSI packages released by MS but
I didn't have much luck (couldn't find any good documentation).
