Hi ..
I am trying to create nested MSI. When I run the parent MSI, it calls the second MSI and then:
"error: 1731 the installer cannot install one of its required products" can anyone, please, help to solve this issue.

Please obtain detailed log (run msiexec /l*v /i your-package-name.msi), and upload log file here. You will find it in your %temp% folder, file name starting with MSI.

It took me longer, but i had no other choice.
