Default Installer runs an Installer?

Okay, i know its my first post and i may not get anyone but i hope someone responds.

Have you ever seen installers that require you to install something and then continues the insall?

You have a program that will install a game on your computer --> You run the installer --> The installer prompts another installer to install .NET Framework so the game can run ---> You run the installer for .NET Framework --> .NET Framework gets installed --> The game installer continues installing the game.

How can i create something like that?

Default Re: Installer runs an Installer?

You can generally check when an executable has finished executing in most programming languages and set up an event or poll on it to continue from there. That's generally how most of those things work unless there's a more complex communication mechanism in place.
