Default How to use the bootstrapper plug-in ? Help please!

Hi there, I hope you can help me, okay I started working on VB.net by making a windows application. I finished it. I would like to deploy it. No problem, but I would like to install the framework first then the application (in case the machine is without the framework or not with the right version) I looked for informations and found the word bootstrapper, I realized there is a plug in version! so I was thinking it would be simple to test it. I downloaded the bootstrapper plug in , installed it, went to the list of programs to be sure it was installed. Then I built a setup project (of my app) and I looked in the directory Debug of my setup project(my app is still in debug version) I found more files than in the past (good sign I guess), there are my application of course (in a msi file) but also "dotnetfx" and the "language pack" (I am french) etc. I launched the setup file but it doesnt launch the framework. So I missed something (it should launch framework install, then test the existence of it)

please help me :( thank you!

Well, it would stand to reason that if you are attempting to launch the installer on your development machine (which obviously has the framework) then the installer should be bright enough to recognize that and not start the installation for the .net framework. Have you tried this process on a machine without the framework already installed?
