Hey all..

From InstallShield manual -
Due to the nature of DOS, when you launch Setup.exe from the command line, a DOS prompt is quickly returned although Setup.exe is still in memory.

Now, I need to run uninstallation of another setup.exe from my installing silently. It can easily be done using RunAppAndWait("setup.exe", "/s....", WAIT), but, like the manual says, it reurns immediately and I need to wait for the uninstallation to finish before proceeding.

I tried -

but it also returns immediately.

Is there a way to overcome this behavior?
