Good Morning All

I am trying to find a way to deploy 2 exe, here is the catch the second exe must wait until the first exe is installed. the problem is the first exe requires a reboot before it registers correctly in windows. and i cant use task sequence as this will be pushed to our external users as well. is there a way i can either tell the package or the advertisment to install the first exe then reboot then install the second exe without using a task sequence?

You can create 2 programs. One program for your first EXE and second program for second EXE.
On first program set on "General" step action for "After running" to "ConfigMgr restarts computer".
On second program on "Advanced" step check combobox "Run another program first", browse to same package and select first program, also check combobox "Allways run this program first".
 
Then create advertisment and on "General" step browse to package and make sure that you select second program.

That should work. Test and report back.
