Hello! I really hope someone in here can give me some help.

My Installshield project installs a database, then the application to use the database. I also need to install a database service that was built in Visual Studio and is an msi file with it's own setup.exe. I want to run a custom action, in the After Register Product process. I see my choices are run an executable or run a dll. It will not allow me to pick the msi file. So I thought maybe I could set the file name to the setup.exe. When I tested it, it could not find the msi file. So how do I get this separate msi/setup.exe to be executed in the custom action? BTW, I am using 2010 Expresss edition.

Thanks!
