I have two MSI files. I need to deploy through SCCM. I need to wrap these two MSI files to using a single EXE file. When I double click on exe file it should install these MSI one after the other.

I am using Wise Package Studio. Please help.

You can try it on Windows Installer 5. I use to nested msi on InstallShiel or Orca, i never did it on Wise. 

First, use custom action type 23.

Sequenced, after InstallInitialize

And you can set the following  properties

- on install : ALLUSERS=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL 

- on uninstall : ALLUSERS=1 REMOVE=ALL 

I hope this help you

Why? Create a command file to execute the relevant command line and use that as the install instruction for the package.

Well, make your mind up! Is SCCM deploying or are you?

  • SCCM deploys these MSI files.. but I need an exe to give to my junior technicians so that they can just double click the exe and install 2 msi 's one by one.

Use a wise script. Keep the two msi files in a single folder & call the msi from that location. script below :

item: Execute Program
  Pathname=%SYS32%\msiexec
  Command Line=/i %INST%\1.msi /l*v <path of log file> /qn
end
item: Execute Program
  Pathname=%SYS32%\msiexec
  Command Line=/i %INST%\2.msi /l*v <path of log file> /qn
end
