Want to merge two separate installshield project in one to install two product in one installer

I have two InstallShield project for installing two application. 

First - is WinForms application

Second - Windows service

The second installer depends on the first one. We need to select the path of first application where it was installed for a license.

But now client want only one .exe for installing above two application.

Can it be possible to call second .exe from first through code of first?

I tried this but not works. Both exe having same name and same rar/zip files there files.

 

My installshield version is 12 professional edition

Hi @yogini ,

 

   You can create one exe as prerequisite to the other one, more info on how to create prerequisite available at this link : https://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/installshield19helplib/helplibrary/SetupPrereqEditor.htm#Ref-Pre...

 

Or you can create a suite project to install both as part of single setup.
