Hi, there,

I create a compressed release package named "setup.exe".
And then I use "-r" to record installation process and get the "setup.iss" file.

I want to know how to add "setup.iss" file into "setup.exe".

I mean use only "setup.exe" file to do silent mode.

I don't think that's possible. It's a chicken and egg situation. Your setup.exe would have to extract the .iss file in order to run silent, but it should do that silently.
Two possible solutions:
- If you want your setup to always run in silent mode, simply remove all your dialogs. No need to an .iss file then.
- Create a self extracting package (using WinZIP or any other tool of your choice) that wraps the setup.exe from InstallShield plus the .iss file.
