InstallShield SDK

Hi,
I want my setup program to execute an external program. In InstallShield SDK, is there a function like VC 4.0 winexec() function? It's because my application is using the mscomm32.ocx and when I transport my app on an other computer, I must register the OCX first. So I want to do this in the setup program. I searched the Online reference but I didn't find anything.
Thanks

Okay !!
There is 2 functions actually: LaunchAppAndWait and LaunchApp.

Check u're online help for parameter details. Actually when U call one of these functions they call afterwards WinExec or CreateProcess which are WINDOWS standard functions to call another application.
