2 ways:

1) In custom action select "Launch an executable" and proceed
2) Write a custom action and make use LaunchAppAndWait() function;

If you are using a pure InstallScript project, you should be able to use LaunchAppAndWait from OnFirstUIBefore to call the setup.exe for the other install, provided you can access its path.

If what you mean is that you need to access it through HTTP, I don't know how to do that in InstallScript. Perhaps someone one will chime in with a way.

(BTW, custom actions aren't available to a pure InstallScript project.)
