Launch Conditions Editor
Specifies conditions required for installation on a target computer. Searches can be used to find a file, registry entry, or component; the search result is returned as a property that can then be evaluated in a condition.
To access the Launch Conditions Editor, on the View menu, point to Editor, and then click Launch Conditions when a deployment project is selected in Solution Explorer.
The Launch Conditions Editor contains a single pane with a hierarchical list of searches and conditions. The list is divided into two sections: the Search Target Machine node for searches and the Launch Conditions node for conditions based on search results.
