Running a prerequisite msi in silent mode?

I am new to Install Shield and I am currently playing the evaluation copy of 2009.

Could someone explain to me how I can run a prerequisite msi in silent mode?

I have setup the msi file as a prerequisite of my Basic MSI Project and it picks it up that it needs to be ran fine, however, instead of just installing the files it pops up a form asking the user to Install or Cancel (see attached screenshot).

Sorry if this is a silly question!

Thanks in advance.

In the Prerequisite Editor for your prerequisite look at the Behavior tab.

Edit the prerequisite, go to the "Application to run" tab. Here you will find the test box to enter the command for the msi to run in silent mode, enter /qn in the text box.

Hope it will work.
