In VB.NET (NOT vbcript) Is it possible to make a program that installs multiple 3rd party programs?

I have 3 third party programs that each have their own .msi's for installation.  I need to be able to write a vb application that will install them all AND have no user interfaces come up that have them click next next next next etc.

I have already accomplished it with vbscript using msiexe.exe /q - but we now need it to be an application.  Preferrably a One Click application.

Is this possible and can anyone give me some links or examples?
Thank you!

I am sure you can accomplish this using Visual Studio (I do not know how, I use the Express versions which can NOT do it), however, try the NSIS package which you can configure to run your 3rd Party MSI's sequentially. (just do a google search for NSIS, its on Sourceforge)

Thanks all, for taking the time.  Wdosanjos that's exactly what i was looking for.

NSIS seems to be a standalone application.  It does look neat though, thanks for the link!
