Use vbscript or .bat or wise scripts to install the applications.

Dear sreya,

Select both MSI's, right-click on them and click 'Send to' -> 'Compressed folder' and there you have your 'package' of 2 MSI's.

For somebody who publishes a list of packaging interview questions, your posting of this link is, at best, disingenuous.

Nested MSIs are A Really Bad Idea. You should have highlighted the caveats which MS outs in the article, viz.:
Although you can create a nested MSI installation, there are drawbacks to doing this. These drawbacks include the following:
  • Nested Installations cannot share components.
  • An administrative installation cannot contain a nested installation.
  • Patching and upgrading will not work with nested installations.
  • The installer will not correctly cost a nested installation.
  • Integrated ProgressBars cannot be used with nested installations.
  • Resources that are to be advertised cannot be installed by the nested installation.
  • A package that performs a nested installation of an application should also uninstall the nested application when the parent product is uninstalled.

I also agree with you about the nested MSI and I am sorry I just answered his question and did not use my brain to caution him about its drawback.
