I am new to InstallShield and I am using InstallShield developer 7.

How do I include a child installation program in a parent installation program in order that the parent program can executes the child one when I run the parent installation?

Thanks in advanced.

Please access the InstallShield Help Library, and enter "Nested" in the Index tab. Please review the article entitled "Nested Installations". This should walk you through this process.

I am also looking at nested installs and was wondering if the msi that is to be called has to be a Basic MSI project or can it also be from a Standard project?

As well I was looking at the Custom Action Wizard to add the msi and on the Action Parameters dialog it prompts for Source. Where should the msi source files be stored?

I currently have the Data1.cab and the .msi file stored in the Support directory of the parent media, but this can not be reached from the Source Browse button.
