No prerequisite in packaged game ?
This is an old one, i already posted a BR and this was supposed to be solved in 4.17 (UE-43812).
But one of my testing friends installed my packaged game on a fresh windows and couldn't play due to missing dlls.
I sent him the good old UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe and it worked after that. But i can't ask everybody to do this when the game is released.
Just to be sure, i have checked "include prerequisites" but not "include app local". Am i doing ok ?

The packaging tool gives you a runnable game without an installer, so with that distribution method, you're expected to use the prerequisites installer if required. When you tick the box, the prereqs are packaged in this path: WindowsNoEditor\Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us.
If you're looking to really deploy your game as a final distribution, you want to use the Project Launcher window (in Window>ProjectLauncher). Here you want to make a custom profile that fits your needs. I don't believe this gives you a installable .exe that handles the prereqs, I think that's up to you though.
