Launching another Installshield setup file

Hey all-

I use Developer for all our setups.  I'm trying to create a master install that launches all the individual setups that I have.

For the individual setups I have created a compressed setup.exe file.  The master install uses a custom action to launch each setup file.

The master install launches the first setup fine and then shows the user dialogs fine.  The problem is when it tries to start copying files, the setup just hangs at 0% until it eventually times out.  I've looked at the log file and it really isn't much help.

Is there some trick to launch one Installshield setup from another??

If this is an MSI type installation, then you may need to use "nested installs" or use a non msi "wrapper" to sequence the other setups.
