Enable windows feature during installation of the product.

In our application we want the ‘Application Initialization’ feature/Role (feature of windows server 2012) enabled. Currently, we have to enable the ‘Application initialization’ feature/Role manually before/after installation.
How to enable the ‘Application Initialization’ feature/Role through InstallShield basic msi project?
Is there any inbuilt capability in installshield to enable the windows feature/Role OR we need to write any custom action for that?

I guess there's no built-in way to do this.
May be a powershell script as a pre-requiste may help, or a powershell custom action.

Suite installations currently allow for enabling Windows Features for each package that is installed with a suite. For more information, see the following help article:
