I am new to start using installshield.

I have three vb.net applications. Two windows application, one web application.

I want to:

1) put three applications in one setup.
2) Let user to choose which application he wants to install or install all of them.
3) Uninstall once to clear all.

thanks a lot.

You can do this from the Project Assistant. Create three features on the Installation Architecture page - one for each application. (you may also want to create a fourth root feature)

On the Installation Interview page, select Yes for "do you want the users to be able to selectively install only certain parts of your app" question.

By default, the user gets asked whether they want to install everything, or select which parts themselves. If they select Custom, then they get a dialog which lets them select or deselect features. From the feature selections, the installer decides which components (and from there, which files) to install.
