What do you mean with including a project??

Do you want to start the other project?

Or do you want to merge them together?

Merge them together into one. There is merge modules but how to convert one
existing project int one merge modul?

Anders:

I had the exact same question as you. I have a number of COM+ components which can very nicely be exported to *.msi files from the Win2K Component Services dialog. Now, how to merge them with my main *.ism project, which installs a large number of components, including these COM+ components?

The answer is in the "Custom Action Wizard", invoked in the Install Sequence dialog. Go along with its questions, and eventually you will get a drop-down box of which the *last* item is "install an .msi project".
