Hi,

I am trying to run an exe during the installation of .msi. However, the installation is not getting completed because 2 installations are running at the same time. I wanted to know how can I pause the installation of first one, execute the second completely and then resume the first installation?

I need to have silent installation. I need to execute .msi file on the command prompt and I need to install prerequisite as well. The prerequisite page in Wise Package Studio 8 doesn't allow me to execute the .msi file along with prerequisite(.exe) file in silent mode. How can I achieve this using Wise Studio?

sounds like your exe is actually an MSI. In which case what you are trying to do is not possible.

msi can only run a single session at one time. You can have two msi's running at one time using msiEmbeddedUi Api which requires a complex session transaction proxy to be setup. Based on the fact you asked this question heading down that road it is unlikely this is a path you should begin to entertain.

as such I believe your best path would be extract the 2nd msi from the exe, run them sequentially one after the other.

one other thing you may face.

there is a 2gb limit on the size of a cab file. you cannot put a file over the size of 2gb into a cab.
