Issue




MSI does not identify the named instance of SQL and throws the error message we 
specified in the system requirement check. See attached snapshot.
Steps:
1. Create an MSI, add a system requirement check to check if SQL server is 
installed (Windows Installer editor -> System requirements page).
2. Run this MSI on a machine which has only non-default named instance of SQL 
server.
