Prerequisites and Integrated Installers

Based on our experience, the installation of a program and associated Windows roles and features or software prerequisites and components should be done separately. If a software installation contains test mechanisms for prerequisites and separate installation files for the main program, these are packaged separately in order to be able to be installed during software distribution before the actual program. The control of the installation is therefore entirely in the hands of the infrastructure team.

Such prerequisites are often applicable multiple times for other software products and in large enterprise environments new combinations of infrastructures can be designed from a library of software packages.
