How to install a second .exe with instalshield

What is the proper process for installing a second .exe file silently? I have InstallShield installing the second file but I am doing something wrong. The setup.exe file is twice the size it should be and takes forever to install. I added a custom action to install the second .exe file and the only way that would work is if it went to files and added the .exe file there as well. But I think the file is in there twice now. A simple step by step on how to do a silent install of a second program is all I really need, so I can see where I went wrong.

Any help appreciated!

You should use a custom action to launch a 2nd exe with one installation. This way you can use whatever method you feel most comfortable with.
