When using embedded SIS packages, the (parent) SIS package should also declare a dependency to the embedded SIS, if it is required to run the application.


Embedding a SIS file does not automatically create a dependency to it. Without the dependency, the system will not warn the user when trying to remove the embedded component via the Application Manager.
With the dependency, the user is shown the following warning:
"Removal may stop other applications from working. Continue anyway?"


If the embedded component is required to run the application, add a dependency  to it in the application .pkg file:
; Embedded sis
; Dependency and required version
(0x23456789), 1, 30, 0, {"RequiredComponentName"}
