dependency Element

Updated: September 26, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

The dependency element contains a child productId element. A dependency element can also be nested by using logical and and or elements. The value of the productId element references a product on which the product has a dependency. The product referenced in the productId element must be installed before the product defined in the parent entry element can be installed.

When multiple child dependency elements are included using an and element, the products defined by the child dependency elements must be installed. When more than one dependency element is included using an or element, one of the products defined by the child dependency elements must be installed on the client computer.
