Use 'Execute script/batch file' action. But I don't know how to check the exit status of the script.

hi
u can do so by adding the file into INSTALLER_TEMP_DIR (installer temp directory) and running the particular EXE from that location during PRE-INSTALLATION.

tell me if still u face any problems.
