Bundle multiple msi

I have 3 MSI files that i am trying to bundled into 1 Msi. Wondering whats the best way to create a single package & also if it's not a good practise should i still take that approach or just run them through a batch file?

the chaining function is definately the go. It does require either C++ or C# the later dependant on NetFX.

Both require Windows Installer 4.5 so either way is quite a task. If your in an SDLC shop then I would research these methods. If your in corporate deployment write the script as suggested or use your deployment tool to handle it.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
