Installing two programs with VS.NET Setup & Checking if Flash is installed

Is it possible for my Setup solution to check if Shockwave is installed on a destination computer, and if not, how can I set it up to install Shockwave (I have the .msi file, how do I get my Setup to run it?)

You might be able to use the RegistryKey class and check in the registry for entries of ShockWave (maybe under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE....). If its not there, then you can execute the Setup.exe of ShockWave using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start () method.

I'm assuming that you know about Set-up Deployment projects, the Installer class which you have to extend, the Install () method which you have to over-ride, etc.
