Dear Install-Experts,
Perhaps you can help me....
My Setup must run for win95, 98, nt, 2000 and xp. if it's win95 I have to start USB.exe and two other setups.exe
for the other windows I only have to start the other setups.exe.
How can I do that? (detetect the Windows Version and starts other Programms)

Create a custom action to run an executable: this should be easy enough using the Custom Action Wizard.  Put that CA into your InstallExecuteSequence and add a condition to detect the version.

You can check for NT/9x series just by saying:
VersionNT or

To get a specific version, you need to check the actual value of these Properties.  The value will be the version number multiplied by 100

So if you want to say "Win 2K or Win XP" then the condition should be:
VersionNT >= 500
