MSI Install Folder Question

Hi,

I'm using Visual Studio to create an MSI (installation package). I'm new to
MSIs, but I've used SMS Installer quite a bit. I'm trying to perform what is
probably simple task: I want to install multiple applications in the same
base directory, and I want only the first install to specify that directory.
Every install after that should just go into the same folder as the first
install.

Example:
Install1 sets the base folder as [Program Files]\[user-specified-base-folder].
Install2,3, etc. should then be able to read a reg setting created by
Install1, or test for existence of a default path, and then install there.

I'm sure this is very easy, but I'm not having a lot of luck. Any help
would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Steve
