launch msi installer

I am new to Installshiled and learning to build the package.
I am creating basic MSI installer for my appliaction. I want the CrystalReport to be installed on target machine.
I have included cystal report msi package through custom action and sequences. I chose to luanch msi package as action type.
Still i couldn't see the Crystal Reprot component installation on target machine.
What am I missing? What else i need to do?

Hi Gajesh,
How are you installing the crystalreports msi?
How are you calling the msi from within the package? Is ther any condition on the custom action?

Because of the difficulties involved in parent/child MSI packages, some described here, use a Prerequisite instead.

See the help topics, "Designing InstallShield Prerequisites" and "InstallShield Prerequisite Editor Reference".
