    Pre install exe com/scripting

    zn
      We are going to user a PreInstall.exe and a PostInstall.exe as part of our deployment. The pre install exe will check for the following and terminate setup if they fail:
      -test connectivity to our EES
      -check os compatibility
      -competitive check
      -check not server
      -etc
      while the post install will:
      -create our custom machine name
      -user and assign user
      -assign machine name to scm.ini

      what I've found though is that pre install the files aren't there to enable the com dll to work. I have a list of the files we need which we can build into an exe which is

      \SbAdmCom.dll
      \SbAdmDll.dll
      \SbAlgs
      \SbComms.dll
      \SbDbMgr.dll
      \SbFileObj.dll
      \SbGroupObj.dll
      \SbMachineObj.dll
      \SbTokens
      \SbUiLib.dll
      \SbUserObj.dll
      \SDMCFG.INI
      \SbAlgs\SbAlg.dll
      \SbAlgs\SbAlg.dlm
      \SbTokens\SbTokenPwd.dll
      \SbTokens\SbTokenPwd.dlm

      Is it possible to specify more than one pre install .exe and effect the order they are launched in?
