How to install prerequisites and launch EXE?

Apr 8, 2010 at 3:51 PM

Sorry if this is obvious, but I haven't been able to figure it out. 

I created an installer configuration with all my prerequisites.  I have my own setup EXE I want it to run after the prerequisites are installed, but I don't want that file to show in the prerequisites list (since it is not really a prerequisite for itself).  Is there a way to make it launch my EXE after installing the prerequisites?

You're looking for the complete_command option I think.

We used to think the same thing as you are now in the past, but ended up changing the bootstrapper to say that it installs the application (vs. the prerequisites). The capabilities of the bootstrapper to wrap your setup.exe are much better in terms of error handling and other complex scenarios than what you can get with complete commands.

The complete_command works great for my scenario.  Thank you!
