Installing multiple .msi created in visual studio using one installsheild project

Hi all,

I have about 7 .msi excecutables created in Visual Studio 2008 and I want to create one installshield to install/uninstall them all at one time and/or with an option to select which ones to install.

    Is it doable?

    If yes can you PLEASE guide me how to do that?

just asked the same thing from IS Support, using InstallScript:

LaunchAppAndWait("msiexec.exe", "/i " + SUPPORTDIR ^ "Install_NotePad.msi", LAAW_OPTION_WAIT);
LaunchAppAndWait("msiexec.exe", "/i " + SUPPORTDIR ^ "Install_Regedit.msi", LAAW_OPTION_WAIT);

where the msi's are added to the Support Files view.

Thanks for your reply enanrum,

Can you please elaborate in your answer a bit more. So in my IS project I add 7 lines similar to yours and add the .msi files and I am done?
