    And can you describe your situation exactly ? i.e.
    - what kind of pkg you are using there, and how?
    - what happens there ?

    Re: Merging two smart installer SIS packages into one

    My situation is following;
    I've got several binaries (qt exes, sos exe) and I want to make a single installation package. The use of Qt kind of suggests to include smart installer. So currently I've got one smart installer wrapper in which I emded all the sis files:

    ; qt stuff
    "qtapp1.sisx"-"!:\private\2002CCCE\import\qtapp1.sisx"
    "qtapp2.sisx"-"!:\private\2002CCCE\import\qtapp2.sisx"

    ; sos stuff
    @"sos_exe.sisx",(0xFOO)

    What happens, swi installs only the first app. The installation flow is a bit ackward, it seems to cancel the installation and prompts to continue from app menu pressing smart installer icon. It does continue with the installation though.

    Of course I am open to different approaches. I'm kinda new to this packaging process.

    Edit:
    If someone can tell me how to get qt app autostarted (this didn't quite seem to do the trick http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ymbian_devices) I could get rid of the sos exe..

    Re: Merging two smart installer SIS packages into one

    Basically the Smart installer is made to work with one installation only, so if these sis files really need to be installed same time, then I suppose you would not want to uninstall them separately, thus would it make lot more sense on actually combining them together in one sis file ?

    Or trying to embed the other inside the one that gets installed with smart installer (then do make sure the first sis does include all dependency information for the embedded sis as well)

    Yes, install and unintall as one package is indeed the desired way. I will try and make one sis file containing all sw and embed that to the smart installer wrapper.

    Edit:

    This in fact seems to work. Thanks for help.
