I created an application install using "Publish <app_name>" in Visual Studio
"Build" menu. The publishing wroked, but when I tried to install on a
different computer I was shown with the pre-requisites form prompting me to
install SQL Express (I was Expecting that, as I uninstalled it from that PC
to test exactly that).

After I Accepted the EULA an error appeared saying that "an error occurred
downloading a required file".

I have seen many posts about this but they usually are related to IIS
permissions for apps trying to install Report Viewer. My application is a win
forms app and my dependency is with SQL Express so I'm not sure if is related
to the same issue.
