I am preparing a installation script with installshield. My program will work as a service in an XP machine. That's why, I should call the installed program with a parameter as myProg.exe -i" after it was installed.

How can I call the installed program during installation in InstallShield for visual c++? Is there any function to call an exe from installshield script?
Thanks alot.

The function would be LaunchAppAndWait, but this function is not available in your edition. Visual C++ comes with a limited edition of InstallShield Professional 5 where this functionality is disabled.
There have also been reports of problems with InstallShield 5 setups on XP.
