Add software dependency check inside MSI
I would like to add a dependency check inside the MSI. It should show a message when the software isn't available. Or trigger the dependency software provided in the source folder.
I also would like to add in the MSI a message when a curtain software application running and should provide a message to the user to close the program before continuing.
Could somebody help me with this?

You need to add a launch condition, along with a check for either a registry entry of file/folder existence. Your authoring tool (which is....?) should have a UI to the relevant tables.
As for testing for running processes, you'll need to create a Custom Action. There are innumerable scripts around that test for processes, mostly using WMI, which you can incorporate into a CA.
