Software Deployment Question
Call install through .MSI
I'm having an issue with calling an installer through a .MSI. Here is the situation. I have a package which is an installshield .exe. The .exe has 3-4 .msi's within it. There is also a patch via installshield .exe which has 1 .msi within it. When the installshield .exe runs, it extracts the 4 .msi's and installs.
I want to create a custom action to run the installshield .exe silently then proceed to the patch. I've tried inserting this custom action in various parts of the install sequence but can't get it to complete.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I've never done this before.

What have you tried to run the main .EXE silently?
You can try running setup.exe /r to create a record file called setup.iss in the C:\Windows directory. You can than copy this file to the source directory (\\fileshare\App) and run the setup.exe /quiet /f1"\\fileshare\App\Mysetup.iss"
