Open original thread
Hello All

I have multiple installers along with my application where in I want to bundle all of them to one single setup file. When user wants to install the software, I would like to make sure all installers install first before installing my application files. 

Using MS Visual studio Installer project, I have tried to do this but failed to create a single setup file.

Request you to guide me or provide some pointers on how I can do this.

Best Regards

What I have tried:

I was trying with default MS Visual Studio Installer project.

thought to execute these installers through batch file. But did not work for me.

Also I wanted to use custom actions (thought it could be right bet), but don't know how to use it.

So need help on this.
