Software Deployment Question
build setup.exe for multiple MSI
Sorry if this question have allready been ask but I can't find information. I have to package an application that containt different .EXE and .MSI files. I want them to be include in a single setup.exe. I mean that the setup.exe would launch differente prerequisite application before installation the application.
I am using Adminstudio 10. Any one know what would be the best solution?

Best solution is to break it up into component MSIs and install them separately. Doing the install this way with nested MSi and exe files will quickly lead to madness. Updates and patching will be challenging at best. Think also of your logic tree: if each has 2 options (yes/no), a little math will indicate how quickly unmangeable the possible combinations are. I'd really suggest not to go down this path.
