How to launch program from CD after vb deployment installed

P: n/a
Hi All

I have a program which is installed on users computers via an msi from 2005 deployment project

At the end of the install (.net framework and my application) I want to auto
launch another program of mine from the same CD which contains logic to
install sql server express depending on the users needs

How do I launch it from the CD when the initial setup program has completed

The deployment project custom actions want to run additional programs
from the users computer installation folder and I don't want to do that
