Please does someone know how to put the MSDE launch condition in an msi. I've got my msi that requires the existence of MSDE before it can install.

Isn't MSDE supplied in MSI format? If so, use a value in its 'Uninstall' registry entry. I'd advise against checking for the presence of its EXE because it may not be installed in the default folder.

Pick a value from those in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\[MSDE_Product_Code]
