I'm using InstallShield 10.5. I'm new to Install Shield. I have a requirement where

1. MainInstall.exe
2. Folder1 > SubInstall1.exe
3. Folder2 > SubInstall2.exe

I can't compress the child exe's, because it may be used separately.
On runnign MainInstall.exe, I need to call SubInstall.exe which resides inside Folder1.

Similarly for SubInsall2.exe.

Can any one help me on how to call the other exe's.

Thanks in advance.

If you are using an InstallScript project, you can use LaunchAppAndWait to start your other executables from OnFirstUIAfter (with appropriate code in the other OnxxxUIAfter functions) or from OnEnd.
