    Start exe file after installation

    Hi there,

    Is there any way to start application automatically right after installed

    I'd like to use this when program updates itself.
    Program download sisx file over internet and then start it to update.

    And it would be great if I could find a way to start fresh installed exe file again

    For now I have scheme with two sis files. And when first exe start installer. The seccond one wait and when installer finished - start first exe again

    May be someone know easier way to do automatic program updates

    Also I am just curious if can i include one sis file into other and when I uninstall first sis. Is there a way to remain internal sis file installed.

    thank you!

    Please, help me with it.

    Would it be a lot faster to search a bit for answers, and not just think that everything is provided for you... Most of the points at least are discussed plenty of times, as well as Wiki might also have good pointers.

    For example for the starting one, you can simply define it is your pkg file. For auto updates, you could download the sis over HTTP for example, put it in any directory, and launch with document handler (non-embedded), then installer will kill your current application and re-install the new one, and if you define in pkg your application is run again.
