    Running external application from inside Installshield

    So, I see how I can run an EXE from inside Installshield. However, the exe I need to run requires a config file and some extra DLLs. How do I include them as well? These files are not part of the product I am installing. I just need them during the install.

    Add the exe you want to run along with its supporting files in the "Support Directory" (i.e. Support Files -> Language Independent). You can then execute the .exe from that location, from InstallScript code, it will look like:

    LaunchAppAndWait(SUPPORTDIR ^ "your.exe", LAAW_OPTION_WAIT)

    or something similar.
