Hello ALL

I have MSI which holds 3 MSMs inside.
When a user starts the installation he has a form that he can choose 1 of 3 radio buttons. each button assigned to one MSM.
I wish to isntall only the MSM which his button was selected.

How can I do it ???

1. I am little new with the MSI stuff so I need the explanation in details.
2. If it is possible I prefer doing so without using ORCA .

Thanks a lot

To add a feature: add a row in the Feature table of your .msi file. (You cannot define Features in merge modules. A merge module only includes components, not features)
The merge process is described in the SDK documentation.
If you are using a commercial tool you should check it's documentation.
