You can use the following custom action
Execute Program From Installed Files
This custom action calls an .EXE file that is installed by this installation.
Before you add this custom action, add the file to be called to the Files page in Installation Expert
Ensure that you have added the file to be called to the current package
Shaded areas of MSI Script indicate restricted placement for this custom action; because this custom action calls an installed file, it must run after files are installed.
Double-click the custom action and complete the Details tab:
Custom Action Name
Enter a unique name for custom action
Specify the .EXE file to run. It must have already been added to this installation.
Enter command-line options to pass to the .EXE file.
On the Properties tab, In-Script Options is unavailable for this custom action.
