I currently install a 3rd party tool which is then used in a custom action, at the moment this 3rd party tool stays installed, I was wondering if possible to remove the 3rd party tool once the custom action is completed?

Any ideas how to do this or if it is possible?

I am using installshield 2008 pro.

Thanks in Advance

Easy. Instead of having the CA set to 'Execute Program from Installed Files' (a Type 18 action), set it to 'Execute program from Installation' (Type 2). The file will be copied into the Binary table when you compile the MSI. On installation, it'll get expanded into %TEMP%, executed, then deleted.

Don't forget to remove the file from your current package.
