wow.. you are piling up questions here ;-)
considered a trainingcourse?


What tool are you using?


Regarding your question: ( multiple answers possible)
Create 2 features and add the specific Components to the corresponsing feature.

Create 2 mst's configured to either install Feature 1 or 2.


Or conditionalize the components with a PUBLIC property
and set the Property on the commandline.


e.g.  USER=1  means all the components with USER=1 condition will be installed

USER=2 means all the... etc..

Are you using any deployment tool? If yes then, How your msi knows which user is intended to get which set of components..
