I added .net framework 4 to my setup package as a prerequisite, when installing this package an error reports that installing .net 4 require WIC "windows imaging component" ,which I've added as a prerequisite also.
 
but installation failed due to a newer version of this component already installed.
 
I want to ask how to check whether this WIC is installed or not and skip installing it when there is a newer version?
 
thanks

The installer for the prerequisite is what should be doing the checking, not your installer.

How it will check there is an xml file for the prerequisite

You apparently have no idea how software installers work. I recommend that you do some research.
