Call MSI using WDS Answer File

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I recently setup the WDS role one on of our Server 2008R2 VMs and am using an answer file to make most of the install of Windows 7 silent.  What I would like to know, is it possible to call either a PowerShell script or msi install package during the install using that answer file?  

I looked through the components in the image (.wim) file, but did not see a way to do this.
