I have a nested msi running and it appears that it is using the billboards from the main installer since the action of "InstallFiles" is assocaited with both the subinstaller and the main installer.

Is there a way of getting around this? The subinstaller MUST be the same feature because we force it to be installed.

The problem is the billboards cycle gets displayed twice once through the sub-installer and once through the main installer.

The first time the billboards are displayed, they fly by rather quickly. If there's a way of disabling the display of these billboards or display other ones, could someone please recommmend a work around.

Many thanks in advance.

You could try the sample script "Dynamic Selection of Billboards" at http://www.installsi...s/en/isp_ui.htm to see if that helps.
Please note that nested installs are generally discouraged (maybe you can use a merge module instead?) and I also recommend "Basic MSI" instead of "InstallScript MSI".
