Hi,

We're using the LaunchAppAndWait function to launch another installation from the current one. (The launched installation is NOT done with installshield, but is an exe SFX file done with the WinRAR utility (which launch the real installation .exe file from there)

The thing is that we called this way:

LaunchAppAndWait(TARGETDIR ^ "ALPRedist.exe", "", LAAW_OPTION_WAIT);

The launched installation finish OK, but the InstallShield execution DOES NOT CONTINUE until we produce some events in the system (for example, moving the mouse will make the installshield script continue its execution normally).

Is this the normal behavior of the script with the OPTION_WAIT parameter? or are we doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Gabriel
