Hi all,

I want to run an MSI from within one. But I keep getting those annoying 1721 errors. Can anyone help me resolving this issue ?

What is the best way to launch an msi from a msi ?

Nested Installations is the answer , should always be used for such functionalities . Its quite simple and straight forward .

I use installshield , following is one of the installshield KB article which you can refer :
Although this is specific to installshield but due to its simplicity it can be used to implement for any tool .

Windows Installer documentation available on msdn for nestedinstallation custom actions is also quite comprehensive .

Hope this helps .
Cheers ,
