Can you queue install apps or msi's

Hi

Can anyone tell me how you run multiple msi's or install programs from a
single msi. I'm using VS2005?

Thanks

Hi John,
Can anyone tell me how you run multiple msi's or install
programs from a single msi. I'm using VS2005?


A single msi package could install multiple programs, in VS2005 you can add
the projects' output to the setup project or add those application
executable's images to the target folder(View\Fil e System\Select or create
target folder to add the corresponding .exe files and its dependency
component files).

But the VS2005 doesn't support to run another msi package instance inside
the current installation instance, if you want to include a nested setup
package in the current package, I suggest you can refer to the following
newsgroup thread, there has a discussion on that topic:

Hey!!

I packaged my msi within the setup and used custom actions to detect whether the msi was installed and if not run it.

The only thing that I cant figure out is how to hold on with installation of parent while this submsi is installing...
