Actually i transformed the msi to exe now with msi2exe tool then put it into the Before System Search Custom Action During Installation and now it starts before the installer starts. Thanks though for trying to help me (=

One way would be to wrap your installer and the msi installer into a Suite project.

OK, that won't help. You need the Premier version to use Suite projects.

Could you install tour MSI as a prerequisite at the beginning of the install instead of at the end?

Add the MSI in Support directory 

Installscript On end function (It will invoke after clicking the finish button) .you can use Launchappwait method to run the MSI.

If your project is in BASIC MSI. then use Custom action add that custom action in finish button.
