I am having problems running my recent msi package.

It is an msi wrapper around a compiled exe file called

"Silent Upgrade to Adobe Acrobat Pro 707.exe"


Here is the contents of this compiled exe:


Let>RP_WAIT=1 <this simply says wait until each run program below is completely finished before going onto the next run program>

Run Program>c:\winnt\system32\msiexec.exe /p "\\bcscnet.ca\dfs\dist\apps\CLIENT\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat Pro 7 CD\Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional\Archive Backups - DO NOT USE\Update to Version 7.05\Ac705PrP_efgj.msp" REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS /qb

Run Program>c:\winnt\system32\msiexec.exe /p "\\bcscnet.ca\dfs\dist\apps\CLIENT\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat Pro 7 CD\Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional\Archive Backups - DO NOT USE\Update to Version 7.07\Acro707.msp" REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS /qb

The problem is that if I run the exe stand alone it installs the patch update to acrobat for 7.05 and then 7.07 - exactly what I want.

However when I wrap this exe in an msi package it does not seem to "pace itself properly". I want it to install the first run program completely before installing the second run program. It does not do this - it just seems to error out.

In summary when you run the exe stand alone it work. However we must deploy using an msi package.

When I run this exe wrapped in an msi - it does not wait for the first package to complete before startign the second.

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks again
