hi
i'm new at msi packaging. i wonder if i can create an msi package that contains an msi package and command line parameters. i mean, an msi package that calls another msi with parameters.

is it possible? thanks.

Nested MSIs are not recommended. Create an EXE to call MSIEXEC with appropriate command line parameters for both MSIs. Most MSI authoring tools can create EXEs: if you're not using such a tool, you could script the command lines and compile that script into an EXE, using one of the many batch/VBS-to-EXE converters available on the web.

Why not create a transform for the MSI where you define the public properties (paremeters)?
