vb6 installing multiple .exe's with ONE setup.exe

How do I intall a vb6 application and other supporting applications (exe's) using a single setup.exe?

ex;  I want to install a vb6 application and another 3rd party software (ws-ftp.exe) simultaneously.  

Does the vb6 package and deployment wizard allow adding additional setup.exe's that will automatically run after installing my app)

Hi, the Package and Deployment Wizard does support customisation (you can modify the source code for installation), however it's very old and awkward to use.

You can try the Microsoft's Visual Studio Installer, which is newer and more powerful than P&D wizard (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa718352.aspx), Windows Installer or any of the free 3rd party installers (Inno Setup, NSIS, ...)
