Register Dll's before Install Welcome sequence!!!
I have 2 msi's. One is the main installation msi and other is the Licensing installation msi. The installation flow is like this:
1. Start the installation with the main msi.
2. In the Ready to install Sequence, check for some conditions and install the prequisites like: Install the 1st pre-req, then execute the licensing msi(since licensing component is dependent on the 1st pre-req), then the remaining pr-reqs.
3. After these, the actual installation proceeds.
Now, i am asked to include the licensing msi in the main msi itself(which means that instead of having 2 msi's, we need to have only one).
The licensing msi has some files(dll's and exe's) and registries which are installed. then these dll's are getting registered. Then an licensingwizard.exe is getting executed, where the entered license key is evaluated.
I tried creating a new feature and installed this feature based on a condition. But i need to get the licensingwizard executed in the 'Ready to Install' sequence. For this to be executed, all the dl's should be registered.
Pls, help me on how to achieve this?
