Nested MSI

dedek mrazko
Hi there

Is it possible to create in wix a CustomAction that starts another MSI?
(Nested instalation).

If so, could you give me an example.

I know how to add this kind of a action to a *.msi once it is created.
What i need is action that looks like:

- action: MyCustomAction
- type: 87
- source:  Another.msi
- target:    ALLUSERS=2 ADDLOCAL=ALL.........

Is there any way to put this action in .wxs file???
Thanks.

Afraid not.  It's not a WiX issue but rather a Windows Installer
limitation.  

If you need to run two MSI's, your only option is to use a bootstrapper
to call the MSI's separately.

No, nested installations are deprecated by the MSI team.
