I need an installer that can automatically install the dependencies before installing my component.
The problem is that regular installers are made for end user applications and do nothing for separate components nor their dependencies.
Things I need to do in the installer:
Ask for admin rights.
Check that the computer is DirectX 10/11 compatible.
Download and install service pack for Windows Vista if needed.
Download and install DirectX 11 if needed.
Install visual C/C++ 2005 redistributable components if needed.
Install a newer version of MFC if needed. (Not likely but possible with DLL stomping from older applications)
Copy and register my ocx component.
