Do you need a complete tutorial for building msi files? If it's the problem, take a look at http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/dotNetInstaller.asp

Normally an .msi package comes with a setup.exe  If not, you can run it through: MSIEXEC /i filename.msi

You can add an .msi to the file browser of a setup project as any other file.

RobertRFreeman does this mean that only way how to run that .msi during main setup is to add custom action with MSIEXEC?
I was serching for something simple as is adding msm, buit I see that with msi it is not as simple.

Patrik,

Sorry for not responding sooner.  Did not get the notification email.  

I would use the custom action to run MSIEXEC as you mentioned.
