How to stop a process before install.

Is there a way to stop a process or service before the application install? Currently I push a batch file with the "taskkill" command and then push an application install. I recently got InstallShield and was hoping I could incorporate this into the msi package.

Normally, MSI will notice if a file you're replacing is in use and display a warning to the user. If it's not a file you're replacing, you'll still need a custom action to launch taskkill.
