I appreciate the feedback to my previous post, and this one is along the same lines.

Is it possible to create a single installshield package to install 2 different and unrelated programs onto a machine? The problem that I'm having is that I'd like my IS package to have the capability to install Programs A & B independently, while creating separate "add/remove program" entries for each.

Currently, my IS package will create a single add/remove program entry for both A&B. Furthermore, when the user tries to install ONLY A (with B already installed)....B gets removed. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

thanks for the help!

You could create one "umbrella" setup (either with InstallShield or as a exe) that would call Setup A and Setup B in a row.
There are some tools that might be useful for that purpose at http://www.autorun.info , in particlar "CD Browser Written in InstallScript".
