i made a installer with installshield
basic msi project
and i install 2 executes to the program files dir
i would like to execute 1 of them after instalation (alwais execute, so no user interaction)
but the program will need administrator rights
(the program makes an ini file with login data)

how do i set this in the installscript ?

atm i got this:
function MyFunction(hMSI)  

   LaunchApp(INSTALLDIR ^ "getlogin.exe", "");

No InstallScript needed. You can launch an EXE directly as a custom action. If it needs admin rights (waring - potential security issue) then your setup should be launched using setup.exe which is flaggged as requireing admin rights.
