    How to make your own sisx files installed before qt_installer.sisx

    We wrote a program that can and qt_install.sisx with the installation, but our own installation in qt_install.sisx installed before, so it will prompt qt runtime environment does not exist, although to achieve the objective. I would now like to find a way to install their own files and qt_installer.sisx packaged together, but qt_installer in the previous installation.
    I do not know which expert can help. Grateful for!

    There is no 100% guarantee for the installation order of embedded .sisx files in one big .sisx file, unless you write your own installer, that installs them in a specific order.

    In other words, you cannot accomplish this by a simple (or complex) .pkg file, but you need to develop your own installer, which gets installed and run, and which then launches the other installations in the order you wish.

    You could always include an inner sis as a separate deployable item. Then, presumably, you'd be able to install it from the deployed file. (Not that I've ever explored this approach)

    Actually there is a neat hack that you could try.
    Installer mechanism is to install files in the order presented with exception of conditional evaluations which if conditional is true will be executed after the normal program flow.

    This means that you should be able to do:
    Code:
    IF 1
    @"2ndsistobeinstalled.sis"
    ENDIF
    @"firstsistobeinstalled.sis"
    disclaimer: I haven't tried this.
